CerviSCAN - AI based Cervical Cancer Screening

CerviSCAN - Automated Solution for Screening of Cervical Cancer using AI, Robotics and Cloud Technologies

CerviSCAN is an indigenized system full ecosystem for screening of cervical cancer using methodologies of AI and Robotics which makes population screening for Cervical Cancer feasible. Through CerviSCAN, a suite of 7 products are developed which automates the screening workflow right from preparation of cervical smear to AI assisted diagnosis.

The System has been validated on on over 10,000 Patient cases across 4 premium cancer care centres of the country (1)ICMR-NICPR, Noida (2)Regional Cancer Centre, Thiruvananthapuram (3) Dr.BBCI, Guwahati and (4)ABV-Regional Cancer Centre, Agarthala.

CerviSCAN reduces screening cost significantly and improves the screening efficiency of human expert.

Brief Description

Cervical cancer caused 2,80,000 deaths annually worldwide. More than 70,000 of these occur in India. Absence of systematic PAP screening programs coupled with highly skewed ratio of trained cytologists in relation to huge population of our country makes it leading cause of cancer deaths in the India
