Precision in Gynecologic Cytologic Interpretation: A Study From the College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Cervicovaginal Cytology
Uterine Cervical Diseases
Uterine Cervical Neoplasms
The cytologic interpretations of the most significant categories (HSIL, squamous cell carcinoma, and adenocarcinoma) are less precise than those of specific infection (Candida, Trichomonas, and yeast), negative, and LSIL categories. Cytologic interpretations of LSIL are made with greater precision than those of HSIL and may represent a more appropriate endpoint to measure the precision performance of gynecologic cytology laboratories.
