With the advent of artificial intelligence in healthcare, and the use of a colposcope to magnify the cervix, Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid (VIA) can be made into a better alternative over a Pap Test or the expensive HPV-DNA testing.
The Cerviray AI system fits into this system as it utilizes a portable colposcope to magnify and document the cervical lesions if any, coupled with artificial intelligence technology that automatically provides an evaluation of the cervix in minutes, plus a system that enables doctor specialists to make the final diagnosis through the internet (telediagnosis or remote reading) anytime, anywhere. Benefits include a one-hour turnaround time with results, an AI accuracy rate of 93% sensitivity and 89% specificity provided sent images were taken clearly, plus a digital report that can be downloaded and shared with anyone in the cloud 24/7.
“The use of the Cerviray system is ideal for cervical screening in remote islands. Patients are no longer required to travel far to cities to be seen by doctor specialists as the local ICMCI midwives can conduct the screening and evaluations can be made via remote reading, says ICMCI President, Mary Grace Ivanoff”. “This is why ICMCI got the first bite of this type of training to be the first region to eliminate cervical cancer in the Philippines, she added”.
The cervical cancer training was held at the Bacayan Birthing Center in Talamban, and delivered by Coprod Solutions Inc. represented by its Founder and Chairman, Ms. Julieta Gomez, together with CerviQ founder, Dr. Bogs Rivera who envisions a better Philippines with this device. “We are creating simple yet innovative and efficient ways to promote screening by stakeholders. With this new strategy, we can increase allied medical participation in cervical screening through training trainers and increase awareness that cervical cancer is curable and preventable through early screening and vaccination, says Dr. Rivera.”
The collaborators ICMCI, Coprod Solutions Inc, and CerviQ would like to thank Eduardo J. Aboitiz Cancer Center of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI-EJACC) as represented by its EJACC program officer for Cancer Awareness and Cancer Screening and Diagnostics, Ms. Gina Mariquit, as well to the LGU and participants of the first Training of Trainers – Save Women’s Lives in Cebu. All in all, a total of sixty-three (63) midwives got trained in a two-day didactic and practical course on Cervical Cancer Screening and Prevention with the use of a VIA-based colposcope with artificial intelligence system and remote medical specialists reading.
