Automated Cervical Screening and Triage, Based on HPV Testing and Computer-Interpreted Cytology.

08:00 EDT 11th April 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Automated Cervical Screening and Triage, Based on HPV Testing and Computer-Interpreted Cytology."

State-of-the-art cervical cancer prevention includes human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination among adolescents and screening/treatment of cervical precancer (CIN3/AIS and, less strictly, CIN2) among adults. HPV testing provides sensitive detection of precancer but, to reduce overtreatment, secondary "triage" is needed to predict women at highest risk. Those with the highest-risk HPV types or abnormal cytology are commonly referred to colposcopy; however, expert cytology services are critically lacking in many regions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Testing or screening required by federal, state, or local law or other agencies for the diagnosis of specified conditions. It is usually limited to specific populations such as categories of health care providers, members of the military, and prisoners or to specific situations such as premarital examinations or donor screening.

Laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging services offered to consumers outside of the patient-physician relationship.

Computer-based representation of physical systems and phenomena such as chemical processes.

Laboratory and other services provided to patients at the bedside. These include diagnostic and laboratory testing using automated information entry.

A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.
