Why DYSIS Colposcopy is Better
to Diagnose Abnormal Pap Tests
Previously, colposcopy technology used only magnification, and the doctor’s naked eye, to look for abnormalities or disease in the cervix, vagina and vulva. The DYSIS technology takes this examination to the next level using digital technology to identify and map problems, including those that may not be able to be seen with just the naked eye.
The DYSIS colposcope provides a high resolution digital picture of the tissue on a touch-screen monitor. In addition to magnifying the area, filters can be applied, as well as a high contrast mode that can help identify abnormal blood vessels or other cellular or tissue abnormalities.
Unlike traditional colposcopy, after DYSIS the patient’s entire set of captured digital images is stored in a secure patient database. So there is a precise, accurate and standardized record of what was found – that can be reviewed by any treating healthcare provider at any time in the future.
However, what makes DYSIS Colposcope most remarkable is the Dynamic Spectral Imaging technology that accurately measures the reaction of the cervical cells – and summarizes it in a digital map that is overlaid on a live image of the cervix. This state-of-the-art technology enables Dr. Fellenbaum to find and identify areas of disease or abnormality that could be missed with a visual inspection alone.
The result is both earlier and more accurate diagnosis. And, as with any medical condition, early and precise diagnosis leads to the greatest likelihood of a successful treatment and cure.
