Rights and Permissions

Cervical cancer is more common in countries and regions with poor facilities, and they are often not well equipped with high-end equipment required for diagnosis. By way of this article, we would like to demonstrate with three case reports the use of minimal and available technology for documentation in screening and prevention of cervical cancer in clinics having basic facilities. The mobile camera is commonly available with clinicians/technicians these days. It can be used for capturing pictures of the cervix if colposcope is not available or for clicking microscopic pictures of Papanicolaou smears or histology slides to document abnormalities when inbuilt cameras are not functional or not available.
