Paper Abstract

The new technology of digital imaging colposcopy is the subject of experimentation by a number of physicians, some of them working in clinical environments. One of the interesting applications of digital imaging colposcopy is the quantitative measurement of areas of dysplasia, or of anatomical features, on the cervix. It has been suggested that patient care can be managed in response to findings based on these area measurements. We call attention to several sources of error which may not be immediately apparent to users of these systems and which may have implications for the clinical utility of these measurements. We suggest guidelines for the measurement protocols which should be a minimum requirement for use of the systems, and indicate new directions for research to improve the efficacy of this important new technology.
