Abstract

Video colposcopy is a new method for examining the lower genital tract. The video colposcopy system includes a video colposcope on a center pole or overhead boom, a high-resolution video monitor, and an optional image (data) management system. Because the video colposcope has no eyepieces, the technique differs from traditional colposcopy in that the colposcopist views the target only on the video monitor. A modified colposcopy technique is employed to assist depth perception, as the system does not permit stereoscopic viewing. The video colposcopy system, like other traditional optical colposcopes with attached video systems, enhances resident training and patient education.
