DYSIS Featured in US Women’s Magazine
Tampa – 1 July 2014 − DYSIS Medical, Inc., announced today that its revolutionary technology for cervical cancer screening in women with abnormal Pap smears was featured in the July issue of Muses and Visionaries Magazine – a savvy lifestyle publication inspiring women to create a life well-lived.
“Helping women gain awareness of this exciting technology for early detection of precancerous areas of the cervix is so important, since most are not aware how subjective and variable the current procedure is,” US President, Kim Stebbings commented.
“DYSIS has the ability to objectively measure and quantify cervical changes after application of a solution that typically turns white when there are precancerous areas. Today the procedure entails simply a visual assessment which can be very subjective and depends on the clinical experience of the provider. With DYSIS, a color-coded map highlights areas of the most intense whitening effect so they can be accurately marked and biopsied.”
