Clinical Benefits of Using ZedScan

When used alongside colposcopy ZedScan has demonstrated greater accuracy in detecting cervical disease.

Increased sensitivity

  •  More patients with cervical disease are detected
  •  Patients who test negative for disease can confidently be released back to routine cervical screening

 Increased specificity

  •  Better differentiation between high grade and low grade cervical abnormalities
  •  Potential to move to See & Treat for CIN2/3 diagnosis
    • ​Confidence to treat patients identified with high grade neoplasia (HG CIN)
    • Reduce the risk of over-treatment due to higher positive predictive value (PPV) than colposcopy alone
    • Reduce patient anxiety by offering  treatment immediately

​Pin-point the location of pre-cancerous lesions

  • Identify the most suitable position on the cervix to take a biopsy
  • Minimise the number of biopsies taken to one per patient
  • Limit patient discomfort and co- morbidity
