Cytology

microscope icon

A single sample can yield Pap testing, HPV typing, and GC/Chlamydia testing. All Paps are screened for HSV, Trichomonas and Fungus. Other testing is available upon request.

Liquid-based Paps allow more accurate interpretations and fewer repeat Pap tests.
Cytologies are correlated with tissue biopsies.

Reporting includes:

Bethesda and descriptive diagnoses

History summary on report

Patient phone number on report

Copies to consulting or referring physicians as requested

Cytology reminder mailers are provided for patient follow up at no cost. Monthly summary report of findings delivered to your office for patient follow up.

Patient records maintained in an electronic database with in-house billing services.

Automatic HPV testing protocols can be individually tailored to meet your needs.

Non-Gyn, Fine Needle Aspirate Cytology and Immunohistochemical Stain Interpretation available.

To ensure quality, our technologists screen at a pace that they are comfortable with – not the 80 slides per day allowed by the State and required by many of the large lab “Pap Mills”.

The HPV (human papillomavirus) test is done in the lab directly from the liquid Pap sample. The HPV test uses advanced, DNA-molecular technology to detect high-risk types of HPV. Our HPV test detects 13 high-risk types of HPV, responsible for nearly 100 percent of cervical cancers. Knowing whether the patient has HPV shows if they are at risk for cervical cancer and need additional exams.
