HPV Testing and Quality Assurance in GYN Cytology
Michael R. Henry, MD
Testing for HPV has been used in conjunction with GYN cytology for over 20 years. This webinar will look at the current state of HPV testing including the epidemiology of HPV infection, current testing modalities and uses for this testing in cervical disease. Attention will be paid to the differences between co-testing with Pap testing and primary HPV screening. The uses of HPV testing in quality assurance in a cytology laboratory will also be explored.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Learn the differences between the four HPV testing platforms approved by the U.S. FDA
- Understand how HPV results in conjunction with the ASC-US to SIL ratio can be used in a quality assurance program in a cytology laboratory
- Learn the differences between primary HPV screening programs and programs utilizing both cervical cytology with HPV co-testing
