What is it about?

Novel computational methods have been developed to assist cervical cancer diagnosis, but the relationship between the digital information of the colposcopy test and histopathology data has not been completely studied. This paper shows the comparison of three well-known computational methods to try to discriminate among different kind of tissues to improve colposcopy test considering histopathologic data.

Why is it important?

Our findings show there is a relation between computational representation of a reaction that happens during colposcopy and histopathologic data, this information can be used when physicians do not have a histopathological laboratory or they need to obtain a representative biopsy guided by colposcopy based on a computational representation.


Writing this article was an important opportunity to note that the study of the relationship of the colposcopy and histopathology tests from the computational point of view will allow the improvement of the diagnostic methods that are available until now.
