Creating a Mobile Platform for Cervical Cancer Diagnosis

Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide and the leading cause of cancer mortality among women in developing countries. Developing countries often have neither the manpower, nor the infrastructure, nor the funds to implement pap smears and other cervical cancer screening techniques commonly used in developed nations. With this work, we present a mobile, low-cost hardware and software design that could allow an untrained nurse to screen patients for cervical cancer.


Mr. Saulnier is a graduate Electrical Engineering student at Southern Methodist University (SMU). He will earn his Master's degree in Spring 2016.

Mr. Saulnier was selected in 2011 to receive one of the Southwest Research Institute Martin Goland scholarships.  The scholarship program was established in 1997 and named in honor of the Institute's second and longest serving President.  He also recieved a National Merit Finalist Scholarship.
