Vaginal Colposcopy

Vaginal Colposcopy
Endoscopic examination of the entire vagina.

Includes evaluation of the entire vaginal wall with various degrees of magnification. Surface area of the vagina (much greater than that of the cervix with much marked surface irregularity) has high complexity due to time requirements and physician work associated with constant refocusing and change of speculum and colposcope position to maximize visualization of the vagina.

Viewing cervix is not reported separately (an inclusive component of codes 57420, and 57421)

Report cervix endoscopy codes (57452, 57454) for primary examination of the cervix
