Advanced Colposcopy Q & A

What is colposcopy?

Colposcopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows your doctor to examine the tissues of your vagina, cervix, and vulva for signs of disease using a special microscope. It’s an excellent diagnostic tool for the detection of:

  • Genital warts
  • Precancerous changes of the cervix, vulva, or vagina
  • Cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix)
  • Evaluation and management of abnormal Pap smear results

Colposcopy does not require any surgery or cutting.  

What is advanced colposcopy?

At The Miami Institute for Women's Health, Dr. Khamvongsa offers advanced colposcopy using the DYSISⓇ Colposcope — an innovative system that incorporates high-resolution digital tools with traditional colposcopy methods. The system gathers a live image of the targeted tissue, then overlays a patented DYSISmap to identify areas of concern. 

During your appointment, Dr. Khamvongsa applies a special liquid to your cervix. This liquid causes a whitening effect in abnormal cells. Next, he gathers the imaging of the tissue. When the mapping software scans those images, it highlights areas with abnormal cells. 

The results of DYSIS colposcopy reveal the exact areas of concern. Dr. Khamvongsa uses that information to determine the next steps in diagnostics and treatment. 

What is vulvoscopy and vaginoscopy?

Vulvoscopy and vaginoscopy are magnified evaluations of your vulva and vagina. They are a form of colposcopy that uses the same light and microscope to search for vaginal abnormalities. 

These tests are helpful if you’ve noticed redness, swelling, or itching in this area of your body. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes and is not painful. There’s no need for preparation and no recovery time. 

In some cases, this process reveals a need for a biopsy, which is the removal of a small tissue sample for more in-depth evaluation. If a biopsy is needed, you receive numbing medication before the procedure, and you may experience some tenderness and swelling afterward. 

You receive detailed post-procedure care instructions. Adhering to those guidelines is the best way to reduce your risk of infection and speed the healing process.  

If you’d like to explore advanced colposcopy in more detail, call The Miami Institute for Women's Health to schedule a visit. Online booking is also available and can be done from the comfort of your home any time of day or night.
