A new colposcope for the BMP Hospital

Colposcope

« We are very grateful to the donors for making it possible to acquire equipment that facilitate our work and reduce the waiting time for an appointment. These donations allow us to examine a greater number of patients at the BMP Hospital. »

Louise Bissonnette, Chief of Peri-operative Services and Dr Anne Fadin, Gynecologic Oncologist

The colposcope is a special microscope used to visualize any abnormalities or cancer cells. This equipment helps detect a possible cervical cancer at a very early stage, therefore increasing the rate of a successful prognosis. Thanks to donations received, the new colposcope valued at $43,000 was purchased for the Gynecology Department of the BMP Hospital.
