Development Study Using Vaginal Tactile Imager
A Development Study Using Vaginal Tactile Imager to Assess the Elasticity Properties of the Vaginal Wall and Surrounding Connective Tissue

The objective is to evaluate and optimize tactile imaging technology in evaluation of tissue elasticity parameters in the female pelvis.

Pelvic organ prolapse affects 40-50% of women in US. This study aims to establish a reliable examination procedure, collect data necessary for assessing the performance of Vaginal Tactile Imaging sensors, assess clinical suitability of interface software and correlate elasticity measurements with clinical examination findings for normal versus prolapse conditions of the female pelvis.

Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
