To address barriers to cervical cancer screening and discomfort caused by the speculum, we previously developed the Callascope—a speculum-free vaginal inserter and camera for comfortable, at-home cervical cancer imaging. However, the inserter’s small channel, designed for comfort, has prevented easy application of contrast solutions that may elucidate lesions, which clinicians regularly apply to the cervix using a large cotton swab through the speculum. Therefore, to expand the diagnostic capabilities of the Callascope, we designed a compatible liquid atomizer that stains the entire cervical epithelium without the use of a speculum.
