Internet-Based Cervical Cytology Screening Program
Internet-Based Cervical Cytology Screening Program

The purpose of this study is to assess whether a system that couples automated screening of Pap Tests with transmission of machine selected digital images, and review by cytologists at a remote location, performs to a clinically effective standard of accuracy.

This clinical study uses the automated screening capabilities of the FocalPoint Primary Screening System (BD) for gynecologic cytology specimens (Pap tests) to allow for automated field of view (FOV) selection, digital image capture, and subsequent Internet-based transmission to a custom designed computer-based image reading station. The system utilizes liquid-based cytology preparations (ThinPrep, SurePath). In such a system, no skilled cytology human resources are necessary at the scanning site, and all expertise can be centralized. Pilot studies showed that the task was feasible to a clinically relevant standard of care. Phase 1 trials on preselected and seeded specimens confirmed this clinical standard. The phase 2 trials extend the concept to a prospectively enrolled population of patients from 2 sites (Walter Reed, Mass General) thereby testing the concept in a population of normal disease prevalence. The final phase 3 will be a larger study with intended use design, siting a screening device at the 121st Army Hospital in Korea and interpreting the specimen images in the US. In addition to the reading of the specimens, the system is designed to give immediate "loop closing" results back to each specimen's originating point immediate upon completion of the test.
