Abstract: Provides a detailed outline of technical factors to be considered in setting up a screening programme for the early detection of cervical cancer. Addressed to decision-makers, the book is designed to make readers aware of all factors, from staff and equipment needs to costs and common pitfalls, that can influence the success of cytological screening programmes. Readers are given detailed technical information on procedures for the taking of smears and the labelling and transport of slides, the design and organization of a cytology laboratory, the examination and interpretation of smears, and the diagnosis and treatment of patients, including protocols for appropriate follow-up. Details range from the arrangement of reagents for Papanicolaou and for haematoxylin eosin staining to a nomenclature for reporting cervical cytological diagnosis
