Cervicography is a technically simple screening test for cervical abnormalities and can be used in conjunction with the Papanicolaou test. Cervicography may be performed by both physicians and paraprofessionals; experience in colposcopic techniques is not required. A significantly greater percentage of premalignant disease is detected when cervicography is used in conjunction with the Pap smear than when the Pap smear is used alone. Cervicography may also be used as an effective intermediate triage test to evaluate women with atypical findings on Pap smear.
