Cervical cancer screening of sexually active or formerly sexually active women ascertains risk or presence of cervical cancer and gives women the opportunity to seek preventative therapy or treatment. PSI supports screening based on examination of the surface of the cervix by visual inspection after applying acetic acid (VIA) or Lugol’s iodine (VILI) and cytological examination of cells that have been gently scraped from the cervix using the Pap smear technique.
