Electronic media: Potentials in cytology

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Throughout history, technology has emerged to solve seemingly impossible problems. The mandates of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 posed an enormous logistical problem to the medical community, the provision of on-site glass slide PT. Interactive multimedia, broad-bandwidth communication networks, and technology that we have yet to envision offer opportunities for testing the interpretative skills of both pathologists and cytotechnologists. The greater challenge, however, is returning to a consensus as to the purpose and expected sensitivity of the Pap smear examination.
