Colposcopy and Treatment of Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia. A Beginner’s Manual

Edited by J.W. Sellors and R. Sankaranarayanan

This manual is designed to teach medical and nursing personnel to detect and treat cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. It is especially relevant to screening and early detection of cervix cancer in developing countries where diagnostic and therapeutic expertise are not readily available.
The manual was developed during the implementation of several cervical cancer screening and treatment programmes, and draft versions were used in over 20 training courses on colposcopy and management of cervical precancers in nine different countries in Africa and Asia.

A Practical Manual on Visual Screening for Cervical Neoplasia

Edited by R. Sankaranarayanan and Ramani S. Wesley

This book is a teaching manual on visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and with Lugol’s iodine (VILI) to train health personnel, especially in developing countries, with the aim to detect this disease in the early pre-invasive phase and save women’s lives. The two simple, low-technology screening tests – based on the ability of the trained health-care personnel to detect acetowhite areas, or yellow non-iodine uptake areas, in the cervical transformation zone – are being evaluated as potential alternatives to cervical cytology.
