Screening Errors. Screening errors account for about one-half of laboratory false-negatives and result from two major causes. Smears may have too few cells; abnormal cells per smear seems to be a minimum threshold for recognition by the screening cytotech-nologist. Smears may show small single cells called "no-see-ums. Hyperchromatic crowded groups of cells are often difficult to accurately classify. They may be normal endometrial cells or benign basal cells seen in atrophy, but abnormal cells from HSILs can also mimic this appearance.

Metrics details. Though obesity is associated with some malignancies, its association with cervical cancer is still inconclusive. This study was aimed at determining if there was an association between obesity and cervical epithelial cell abnormalities CEA. Pap smear cytology, random blood sugar RBS and human immune-deficiency virus HIV screening was done for all the participants.
The Pap Smear Test is the most successful cancer screening technique in history. It was named after its inventor, Dr. George Nicholas Papanicolaou. His father, Nicholas, was a doctor. His mother, Maria, loved music and literature.
