Clinical application of a new evaluation system in CIN2+ assessment
Keywords: clinical application, new evaluation system, CIN2 assessment
AbstractTo improve the quality of population-based screening in resource limited areas, a feasible strategy would be providing gynecologists with an objective method for colposcopy procedure standardization and results interpretation. R-way (R: Red; w: white; a: abnormal vascular features; y: yellow) is a standardized colposcopic evaluation system based on standard colposcopy procedure. By analyzing the sequentially appeared features (“R”, “w”, “a”, “y”), a preliminary diagnostic result will be drawn along with a suggestion of biopsy regions, if required. R-way system is built to provide gynecologists with a technical assurance for quick CIN2+ lesions location, hopefully contributing to a decreased incidence and mortality of cervical cancer worldwide.
