Atlas of colposcopy – principles and practice

Ancillary instruments for colposcopy

  

A colposcopy examination table (a couch with adjustable height and recline, leg support, and space for an instrument tray) is ideal. However, colposcopy can be performed on an ordinary gynaecological examination table.





A focusing light is useful for performing procedures like cryotherapy and thermal coagulation.




The following small instruments should be included while laying out the instrument trolley for colposcopy:
  • kidney tray
  • gallipots
  • self-retaining vaginal speculum
  • sponge-holding forceps
  • endocervical speculum
  • punch biopsy forceps (Tischler or other type).
