What is a DYSIS Colposcopy?
A colposcopy is an examination of your vagina following an abnormal cervical smear or a diagnosis of HPV.
Who needs to have a DYSIS Colposcopy?
There are a few other reasons that this might be performed such as:
- Unusual vaginal bleeding
- Pain after intercourse
- Concerns regarding cervical cancer or pre-cancerous cells
How is the procedure performed?
It is done using a machine called a colposcope which is essentially a microscope with a light. This examination may be uncomfortable, but should not be painful. We are here to support you every step of the way at Ghosh Medical Group, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Upon examination, our Consultant Gynaecologist may feel that it is necessary to take biopsies of your cervical tissue - this is completely normal practice, so please don’t be alarmed. Sometimes further procedure such as a loop excision may be recommended, and if required, can also be performed at Ghosh Medical Group.
Whilst the colposcope itself does not need to be inserted into the vagina, similarly to a routine cervical exam, a speculum would be placed to enable our doctor to view the required areas.
Why choose Ghosh Medical Group?
We all love our NHS, and know that they work tirelessly to keep us all safe. However, waiting times remain months for most specialities and due to this, further investigations are often delayed, with non-urgent cases being asked to “wait and see”. Understandably, this can be a very anxious time, and that’s where we come in. Our waiting times are vastly reduced compared to the NHS, and we have access to the newest, and most innovative technology; the DYSIS colposcopy machine, currently the only facility with this equipment in the Liverpool area.
DYSIS is a computer-aided examination that uses sophisticated technology to map the cells, and blood vessels to create what DYSIS refer to as the “DYSISmap.” This innovative technology gives our Consultant Gynaecologist an unprecedented picture of your cervical cells, and the surrounding blood vessels, which offers an insight into even the most subtle of abnormalities. This allows us take all the necessary steps to keep you well.
The vast majority of the time, this means that we can offer reassurance, or a potential diagnosis the very same day; no more anxiously awaiting results.
