OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to reduce the number of diagnoses of atypical glandular cells (AGC). Residual material from the cervical ThinPrep® samples (Hologic, Marlboruogh, MA, USA) was used for cell blocks (CB) and immunohistochemistry (IHC). METHODS In 2007 there were 87 patients (0.12% of tests) with AGC on liquid-based cytology (LBC) in(More)
OBJECTIVE To exploit cervical thin layer brush samples through cytohistology in cases with invasive carcinoma with application of antibodies. STUDY DESIGN Fourteen cases from women with carcinoma diagnosed in 2006 were selected out of 29 invasive carcinomas. From these 14 cases liquid-based cervical cytology material was available to prepare(More)
OBJECTIVE The large set of ThinPrep slides prepared in the Leiden Cytology and Pathology Laboratory is exploited for calculating the impact of the transition from PAPNET neural network scanning to the Imager technology. STUDY DESIGN All cervical samples were suspended and fixed in the coagulant fixative BoonFix. We compared 57,541 ThinPrep slides which(More)
OBJECTIVE To optimize the morphology of pl6-positive atypical and (pre)neoplastic cells in paraffin cytoblock sections with the aim to minimize equivocal diagnoses on cytology samples. STUDY DESIGN Patients with negative cytology results or results within normal limits (WNL) (n=38), atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) (n=25) and(More)
