Digital Cervicography is a noninvasive visual examination method performed by taking a photograph of the cervix (called a cervigram) after the application of 5% acetic acid to the cervix epithelium.

In each of the initial 2 projects, just under 3 000 previously unscreened women aged 35-65 years were screened with 4 screening tests: (i) cytology; (ii) screening for high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV) (DNA testing); (iii) visual inspection with (5%) acetic acid (VIA) to visualise aceto-whitening, an indication of an underlying cervical cancer precursor; and (iv) cervicography, in which the cervix was photographed after VIA using a specially adapted camera.
Nurses evaluated 6,572 HIV-positive patients with visual inspection and digital cervicography and 3,523 (54%) were screen positive.
