CerviQ a social enterprise with prime advocacy to end cervical cancer celebrated it’s 1st anniversary by providing free cervical screening using AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology held in Barangay Holy Spirit Quezon City on February 14.
Dr. Bogs Rivera, Oncologist and founder of CerviQ boasts that they are the 1st to be granted partnership with their foreign counterpart. The Philippines is the 17th country to use Artificial Intelligence.
“Patients with cervical cancer has no symptoms during the pre cancer to early stage that’s why it is highly recommended for women aged 18 years above to be screened”, Rivera stressed.
The Artificial Intelligence technology provides not more than 5 minutes release of analysis after the image of cervix is captured and sent abroad for interpretation.
Despite the groups reminder that they can only accommodate not more than 30 patients to maintain social distancing, almost a hundred came hoping to be screened. This prompted them to just get the names and expressed their hope that another schedule shall be granted and financed by the Barangay.
Patients are given pre cervical cancer screening questionnaires by the organizers to understand their KAP – knowledge, attitude and practices. This would serves as a guide to place more emphasis on wrong beliefs and common myths on cervical cancer.
After patients answered the pre questionnaire, they attend a film showing to understand more what cervical cancer screening is for, and to highlight other forms of prevention like vaccines.
