Atlas of visual inspection of the cervix with acetic acid for screening, triage, and assessment for treatment

Interpretation of VIA

  

The categories of VIA test outcomes are:

  • Negative
  • Positive
  • Suspicious of invasive cancer.
Rarely, the cervix cannot be exposed properly. In such cases, help should be sought from a colleague. If, even then, the cervix cannot be exposed, the test should be considered as ďcould not be performedĒ.
