The Atlas of Colposcopy – Principles and Practice
as an online resource was made possible by the contributions and active support of many individuals. To begin with, we acknowledge the contributions of the faculty and staff of the Department of Gynecologic Oncology, Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute (CNCI), India. We particularly thank Dr Ranajit Mandal, Dr Srabani Mittal, Dr Dipannwita Banerjee, Dr Pradip Das, Dr Simi Chatterjee, and Dr Mitali Sengupta of CNCI.

We are indebted to the excellent team of health workers, social workers, and laboratory technicians who assisted us in collecting and processing the images. We particularly mention Ms Rakiba Begum, Ms Anushree Ghata, Ms Kabita Mitra, Ms Mithu Guha, Ms Shila Maity, Mr Babu Raul, and Mr Arup Dutta. We are indebted to Professor Jaydip Biswas, Director of CNCI, for his support and encouragement.
