Proposed guidelines for primary screening instruments for gynecologic cytology
Uterine Cervical Neoplasms
These guidelines were approved by the governing boards of the following six societies represented in the Intersociety Working Group for Cytology Technologies: American Society for Cytotechnology (ASCT), American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP), American Society of Cytopathology (ASC), College of American Pathologists (CAP), International Academy of Cytology (IAC), and Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology (PSC). The proposed guidelines as written reflect the current status of technologies in early 1997. These guidelines may evolve over time as newer technologies are developed.
