Efficacy of a modified Ultra Fast Papanicolaou (UFP) stain for breast aspirates.
The chief limitation of Ultra Fast Papanicolaou (UFP) stain, suggested by Yang and Alvarez (1995), is that, Richard Allan Haematoxylin (RA-H) and Richard Allan Cytostain (RA-C), used in the stainingExpand

Interobserver Agreement in the Reporting of Cervical Biopsy Specimens Obtained From Women Screened by Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid and Hybrid Capture 2
Visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and human papillomavirus detection have sensitivity higher than cytology but lower specificity. The high false-positive rate of either test poses a challengeExpand

Improvement of the Mair scoring system using structural equations modeling for classifying the diagnostic adequacy of cytology material from thyroid lesions
The scoring system developed by Mair et al. (Acta Cytol 1989;33:809–813) is frequently used to grade the quality of cytology smears. Using a one‐factor analytic structural equations model, weExpand
