Management of Negative Cytology with EC/TZ Absent or Insufficient

Posted by: Sue Severson

The cytotechnologists and pathologists at Physicians Laboratory have noticed an increase in the number of Pap tests that are repeated on a negative result due to an absence of an endocervical or transformation zone component.  Please click on the link below to see the latest ASCP Management Guidelines regarding those specimens.   Feel free to contact Araylla Hennigar, our cytology supervisor, at 605-322-7204 if you have any questions.  Thank you.
