Spitzer M, Chernys A, Seltzer V The use of large loop excision of the transformation zone
in an innercity population.
Sensitivity of the cervical transformation zone
to estrogen-induced squamous carcinogenesis.
This phase also enabled the nurse to recognise the abnormal transformation zone
, perform biopsies and endocervical curettage.
Both LBC and CP were considered positive for the presence of transformation zone
component when a minimum of 10 endocervical or metaplastic cells or 2 groups of 5 endocervical cells were seen.
However colposcopy did aid in assessing the transformation zone
and the size of the lesion.
The 510(k) application used data from a clinical trial that measured cellularity, (whether a sufficient number of cells was collected), adequacy (the presence of cells representative of the endocervix and transformation zone
- the two areas of the cervix where cervical cancer typically starts), reporting according to the Bethesda Classification System, and patient comfort.

The most commonly used approach to the management of CIN 3 is loop electrosurgical excision of the cervical transformation zone
Instead, samples will simply be deemed either "satisfactory" or "unsatisfactory" with separate descriptors noting the presence or absence of transformation zone
components, obscuring elements, or other factors that might limit interpretation.
Once inside, transformation zone
begins and stretches across the casino to the oasis zone, an outdoor pool area.
We also assessed the effect on follow-up biopsy diagnoses of the presence or absence of an adequate endocervical cell/ transformation zone
sample (EC/TZS) in Papanicolaou (Pap) test specimens from this selected older population.
But when the examination is done early in pregnancy and the entire area cannot be viewed, even with an endocervical speculum, it is appropriate to wait until the second trimester and repeat the colposcopy; in the second trimester, eversion of the cervical transformation zone
may make complete visualization possible.
