IARC CancerBase No. 13

Authors: Partha Basu and Rengaswamy Sankaranarayanan


The atlas is a rich repository of annotated photographs and illustrations covering almost all aspects of common and rare colposcopic abnormalities. It is a useful addition to the training tools and hands-on training in colposcopy in structured training courses or under the tutorship of experienced and competent expert trainers. The information and illustrations in this atlas have immense potential to be directly useful in the training of nurses, postgraduate students, non-specialist doctors, and gynaecologists in colposcopy, as well as in the day-to-day clinical practice of experienced colposcopists. In this context, this atlas will find its place among the resources that will contribute to cervical cancer control worldwide.
