Normal cervix, colposcopy. The cervix is the lower, narrow portion of the uterus (womb) where it joins with the top end of the vagina. In this case the cervix has been treated with acetic acid to indicate any abnormalities. It shows the junction between squamous epithelium (smooth outer area) and columnar epithelium (inner area). Colposcopy is a medical diagnostic procedure to examine a magnified view of the cervix, vagina and vulva.
