LuViva works by combining fluorescence and reflectance spectroscopy to identify chemical and physical changes in cervical cellular tissue. The LuViva Cervical Guide shines a light painlessly onto the cervix for about a minute.
The patient is positioned with legs in stirrups, and a speculum is inserted into the vagina
The Cervical Guide, attached to a handheld unit, is inserted through the speculum into the vagina until it reaches the cervix
A live video feed on the touch screen monitor helps the operator align the Cervical Guide
LuViva analyzes the spectral data and displays the results on the touch screen monitor for review right at the point of care
