abstract

  • Greater than 97% of all slides in the College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Cervicovaginal Cytology were judged acceptable by participants. Despite expert review and field validation, a small percentage of slides (almost 3%) in this program were deemed unacceptable by participants. These results support the use of participant evaluation of cases to continually improve the quality of cases in this program.
