BSCCP presentation drives demand for ZedScan™ throughout the UK
May 13, 2015
Interest in ZedScan is expanding significantly throughout the UK following Dr Madeleine MacDonald’s presentation at the 2015 British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (BSCCP) conference in Nottingham.
Dr MacDonald reported on the performance improvements achieved following the adoption of ZedScan into routine clinical use at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Her presentation outlined a 14% increase in detection of HG CIN and enhanced confidence to discharge women with no evidence of disease at first visit. Dr MacDonald also detailed an increase in the “See & Treat’ rate, with 100% histological confirmation of disease.
Owen Pemberton, Commercial Director for DP Medical, Zilico’s GB distributor, commented: “Feedback from delegates indicates ZedScan has dominated the conversation at this year’s conference and coupled with the oral and three poster presentations, we have been inundated with requests to present on this innovative system as a result.”
Just prior to the conference, NICE published a MedTech Innovation Briefing (MIB) on ZedScan, discussing its clinical and economic benefits.
The 2015 BSCCP annual meeting also saw the commencement of Professor John Tidy’s tenure as President of the society, taking over from Professor Maggie Cruickshank following completion of her term.
