Abnormal colposcopy General assessment

  

As discussed earlier, a general assessment should be documented during all colposcopic examinations and includes the following:
  • whether the colposcopic examination is adequate or inadequate (and if inadequate, for what reason)
  • the visibility of the squamocolumnar junction (SCJ): fully visible, partially visible, or not visible
  • the type of transformation zone (TZ): type 1, type 2, or type 3.
