abstract

  • Most laboratories have implemented Bethesda 2001 terminology. New criteria and liquid-based methods have led to an increase in low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion reporting rates and a decrease in ASC/ SIL+ ratios when compared with 1996 data. Liquid-based preparations have higher median squamous intraepithelial lesion rates and lower ASC/SIL+ ratios than conventional smears.
