Patients Enrolled

The Pocket colposcope rivals the image quality of the best colposcopes on the market at a fraction of the weight, size and cost. We have ongoing clinical trials in the United States, Tanzania, Kenya and Peru with more than 450 patients enrolled thus far. New Studies are planned for 2017 in Honduras and Zambia.
