Liquid-based cytology continues to be utilized as an adjunct to conventional cytology in most Australian laboratories, even though a direct-to-vial ThinPrep protocol has been introduced in many countries with established cervical screening programs. Manual screening of ThinPrep slides has been widely practiced for more than 10 years and the recent introduction of the ThinPrep Imaging System (TPI) has been reported as being more sensitive than the conventional smear (CS) in the identification of… CONTINUE READING
