Automation-assisted versus manual reading of cervical cytology (MAVARIC): a randomised controlled trial

Abstract:

Background: The standard for reading cervical cytology is for a cytoscreener to manually search across an entire slide for abnormal cells using a conventional microscope. Automated technology can select fields of view to assess abnormal cells, which allows targeted reading by cytoscreeners. In the Manual Assessment Versus Automated Reading in Cytology (MAVARIC) trial, we compared the accuracy of these techniques for the detection of underlying disease.
