2006 Consensus Guidelines-ASC-US

Slide 7

March 2010

Using these studies, there have been some consensus guidelines which have come out about the use of HPV testing in the background of ASC-US. One of these is the 2006 Consensus Guidelines for the Management of Women with Abnormal Cervical Cancer Screening Tests. This is from the ASCCP which is the American Society of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology.

These guidelines have been endorsed by a number of professional organizations as listed here. The CETC which is the Cytopathology Education and Technology Consortium has also come out with a statement on HPV test utilization which again has been endorsed by a number of organizations including all of the major pathology organizations. This statement was also published in Archives of Pathology and the American Journal of Clinical Pathology.
