Answering the Call in Women’s Health: Meeting Needs in Cervical Cancer Screening
Current approaches to cervical cancer screening can provide ambiguous results that are more confusing than constructive. As a result, more invasive diagnostic tests are often performed to determine if a woman is truly at risk for cervical cancer. New and sensitive triage approaches are needed so that clinicians can more easily establish which women who test positive for HPV should be followed and which should be sent for colposcopy.
Welcome to Answering the Call in Women’s Health: Meeting Needs in Cervical Cancer Screening. This series takes a close look at today’s options for cervical cancer screening with cytology alone, primary high-risk HPV testing alone, and co-testing. Join us for an exploration of cervical cancer screening from unmet needs with current procedures to the best ways to integrate new technologies into clinical practice.
