ThinPrep Screen with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Reflex
Management and triage of patients, age 21 or greater, with abnormal Pap results
HPV testing detection of high-risk genotypes associated with the development of cervical cancer
Results can be used as an aid in triaging women with abnormal Pap smear results
Individual genotyping of HPV-16 and HPV-18, if present
Results of HPV-16 and HPV-18 genotyping can be used as an aid in triaging women with positive HR-HPV but negative Pap smear results.
Reflex Tests Lists test(s) that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial test(s)
|Test ID||Reporting Name||Available Separately||Always Performed|
|70099||High Risk HPV with Genotyping||Yes, (order #62598 HPV)||No|
|82100||Phys Interp of ThinPrep, PAP||No||No|
Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
When this test is ordered, a ThinPrep Pap screen will be performed. If the results include the criteria below, a high-risk HPV test will be performed:
-Atypical cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), and the patient is > or =21 years old
-Atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H) and the patient is > or =21 years old
-Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL), and the patient is > or =50 years old
-Inadequate endocervical/transformation zone component, negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy, and the patient is > or =30 years old
If ThinPrep Pap results are abnormal, a pathologist will review the case at an additional charge.
Special Instructions and Forms Describes specimen collection and preparation information, test algorithms, and other information pertinent to test. Also includes pertinent information and consent forms to be used when requesting a particular test
