As an add–on procedure, the provider uses specially designed computer–aided mapping to identify potential abnormalities of the cervix uteri during colposcopy (endoscopic exam). The service measures and maps light–scattering characteristics of the cervical epithelium (outer layer of tissue) treated with acetic acid. A typical device provides a high–resolution digital view of the cervix that can be displayed real–time, or stored, printed, or manipulated by a computer.
