Cervical Cancer Screening: The Latest Research on the Impact of Different Cytology Methods
Comparing SurePath, ThinPrep, and conventional cytology as primary test method: SurePath is associated with increased CIN II+ detection rates. Rozemeijer K, Penning C, Siebers AG, Naber SK, Matthijsse SM, van Ballegooijen M, van Kemenade FJ, de Kok IM. Cancer Causes Control. 2016 Jan;27(1):15-25.doi: 10.1007/s10552-015-0678-1.

In this second installation, we will be reviewing a previous publication from the same group, where the effectiveness of LBC will be described in terms of detecting cytological abnormalities and corresponding detection of cervical intraepithelial lesions within cervical biopsy specimens. Objective: To compare the relative effectiveness of liquid-based cytology, in terms of atypical cytology classification and corresponding biopsy-confirmed cervical lesions, in relation to manually read conventional Pap smears, within the Dutch cervical cancer screening program Design: Retrospective, population based cohort study Setting Population: Nationwide network and registry of histology and cytology in the Netherlands PALGA database between January 2000 and March 2011.
