abstract

  • In cases diagnosed as ASCUS, there are certain cytologic features and patient types that are more likely to be associated with HR-HPV positivity. This could be used in everyday practice to further fine tune the diagnosis of ASCUS. Monitoring individual and laboratory ASCUS rates with HR-HPV positivity can be an important quality improvement indicator.
