Can portable Colposcopes Replace Standard-of-care Colposcopes? A Crossover Trial of Two Portable Colposcopes with a Standard-of-Care Video Colposcope

Screen positive women need to be triaged by colposcopy which is a major challenge in low-middle. income countries. Portable colposcopes may overcome many challenges, reduce referrals and enable a single visit approach.
