BACKGROUND Workload is extensively regulated in gynecologic cytology. However, sensitive monitors of excessive workload are not available. METHODS We measured the variation in abnormal (atypical squamous cells [ASC], low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion [LSIL], and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion [HSIL]) rates for 4 cytotechnologists (CTs) among different days of the week and at different times during the day while they were performing primary screening with the ThinPrep… CONTINUE READING
