"We were introduced to this Mobile gadget which I found useful in my work. This gadget is able to help me share information with my patient. Also it is good for record keeping and to evaluate the effectivness of my work. When i take a picture of the patient I can keep it in my computer and when she comes again she is able to review and the see the progress when you screen again."

"Quality training is a critical component of an effective cervical cancer prevention program. Equally important, however is having the ability to determine that the providers who have been trained are continuing to make accurate assessments in their VIA screening. The EVA System has allowed us to routinely evaluate provider skills in the field through the use of the device during supportive supervision visits."

“The device is easy to use and is bringing more women to my clinic to be screened because they can now see their cervix for the first time.”
DR. PETER K THOMPSON, OB/GYN, GUATEMALA
"We are using the EVA system for quality testing: confirming we are providing an accurate diagnosis, examining the changes in the cervix between sessions and ensuring we are properly treating women."

“MobileODT’s device is so easy to use. Learning how to use it takes a few minutes and after using it 2 or 3 times one becomes familiar with it. It’s not hard at all...[and] we can reach more women who don’t have access to the right healthcare and colposcopy services. Therefore I would use this device 100%... I would totally replace the standard colposcope with [MobileODT’s] mobile colposcope. The images coming from the mobile colposcope are very similar to the images coming from the standard colposcope but working with the mobile device is much easier than using the standard colposcope.”

“I like it because I find it simple, easy-to-use, and very portable. The fact that it is not energy dependent and that the battery can last for more than two weeks is a major advantage in the field. The use of the internet service allows [me] to have a secure database, available at any time and with the opportunity to compare [results], consult a colleague, and review the decisions. It provides personal and easy-to-interpret statistical data, allowing for self-evaluation and continuous enhancement in one's practice. I believe this device can contribute, not only to a significant improvement of the detection of precancerous cervical lesions, but also lead to the improvement of the screening process and the patient care process. It is particularly useful in the developing countries and in low resource settings... Finally, it must be acknowledged that the cost would never be a restraint to purchasing the device.”

“I’ve been working with women with cervical cancer for more than 20 years. I think this technology may be a real breakthrough in the diagnosis in pre-cancerous changes, not only in the developing world but perhaps in the developed world as well. This could actually replace Pap smear testing.”
