Description

In 1949, she pioneered the "cervical smear", designed to diagnose cancer in women, and opened France's first gynaecological cytopathology unit, in Paris. Despite the enormous success of the unit, it is now languishing for lack of financial support from the Governemnt. Dr. Nuovo resigned in May 1973 in protest, thus precipitating what has become known, in French medical ceircle as "l'afaire Nuovo" Cervical Smear - The Pap test checks for cervical cancer. Cells scraped from the opening of the cervix are examined under a microscope. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens at the top of the vagina. This test is sometimes called a Pap smear. Keywords: people, woman, Dr. Violette Nuovo, French, medical experts, close up, smiling, facing camera,
