We have developed an automated algorithm using hand-crafted features based on texture and color to identify abnormalities in the cervix. Combining multiple contrast mediators as inputs, in particular, contrast enhancement from acetic acid and lugol's iodine enables improved sensitivity and specificity compared to that using acetic acid alone.learn more about the CARE Algorithm >>
The inserter is created without any moving parts and has a tip that resembles the shape of a Calla Lily and a stem for a slimmer version of the Pocket Colposcope. A smart phone with live video can guide the Callascope to the cervix. The Callascope with or without self-HPV testing can enable women to have complete control over the screening process.
The algorithm requires several seconds to analyze the images to provide a decision and when used with either the Pocket Colposcope or Callascope can render a rapid decision that is on par with the sensitivity of an expert provider but with superior specificity enabling more effective screening, triage and image guidance of treatment.learn more about the CARE Algorithm >>
In clinical investigations in over 8 countries across 4 continents. The Pocket Colposcope received FDA clearance in September 2018.
