Would x-Ray, ultrasound and MRI detect HPV? How about specific or general blood test? Is there a way other than Pap test or colposcopy??

In brief: Antibody test

Test for antibodies to HPV can detect the infection.
This requires a blood test. See this site for more info. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1660559/

In brief: No

You need to get a specimen for pathology.
Please forgive me -- there's no substitute. You would not want anything but the gold standard when the stakes are so high. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and wish you the best.
