Over the past decade, however, laboratories have seen a decline in Pap test volumes due to changing screening frequency recommendations, increased efficiencies in Pap test throughput as a consequence of new computer-assisted screening
technologies, and primary HPV testing, which was recently approved by the U.S.
(7,8) In contrast, large US series documenting prior cytologic screening test results in patients with histopathologic CIN 2/3 lesions diagnosed after screening with newer prevalent methods of liquid-based cytology (LBC), computer-assisted screening, and adjunctive high-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) testing remain surprisingly limited.
Beginning in December 2004, location guided, computer-assisted screening of ThinPrep Pap tests slides was used, employing the ThinPrep Imaging System (10) (Hologic Inc, Marlborough, Massachusetts).
The system has the flexibility to accommodate the computer-assisted screening
of selected passengers (CAPS I & II), random level three inspections, and the intensive scrutiny of bags intended for sensitive flights and destinations.
The ijob solution is position-specific, and offers computer-assisted screening
interviews and statistical prediction, further reducing recruiting costs, time-to-hire and turnover.
was used by 175 responders, 174 of which provided workload volumes.
Use of HPV vaccines enter a CxCa screening environment that has shifted dramatically in the United States during the past 6 to 13 years with the introduction of FDA-approved liquid-based cytology (LBC), (2,3) computer-assisted screening, (4,5) widespread high-risk HPV (hrHPV) DNA reflex testing after findings of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) from Papanicolaou (Pap) tests, (6) and the introduction of Pap and HPV DNA cotesting in women 30 years and older.
The MWH serves a significantly older-than-average, (10) relatively lower-risk, US population and uses LBC, location-guided computer-assisted screening, and HPV testing as its primary cervical screening tools.
