New Cervical Cancer Screening Guidelines Highlight the Importance of Actionable Results

Article

 

The ASCCP's recent 2012 Updated Consensus Guidelines for Management of Abnormal Cervical Cancer Screening Tests and Cancer Precursors underscore the impact of abnormal cytology, particularly unsatisfactory and ASCUS results.  

Learn more about the importance of actionable results in this educational promotional supplement to Contemporary Ob/Gyn. Co-authored by Dorothy Rosenthal, MD of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Douglas Malinowski, PhD of BD Diagnostics, this white paper reviews the impact of unsatisfactory LBC specimens on cervical cancer screening and details data that demonstrate that a single sample does not always provide sufficient specimen to conduct both Pap and HPV tests. 

You can also find out more live at the 2013 American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology annual meeting in New Orleans, May 4-8.
