CerviQ: Cervical Cancer Screening Anywhere, Anytime!
CERVIQ is a turnkey mobile application or APP solution, that enables non-physician professionals (e.g. midwives, nurses), conduct cervical cancer screening in their respective communities using visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and Smartphone cervicography.
CERVICOGRAPHY is a diagnostic medical procedure in which a non-physician takes pictures of the cervix and submits them to a physician for interpretation via a digital medium.
Images taken are then sent securely over the internet for interpretation by a pool of specialized medical experts. Screening results, medical prescription if needed, or referrals for treatment/workup is sent back to the non-physician for printing, to be handed to the patient.
