Abstract

In a previous issue of this journal, we presented the background, rationale, general methods, and indicators of participation of a computerised system for the monitoring of integrated cervical screening, i.e. the integration of spontaneous Pap smear practice into organised screening. We also reported the results of the application of those indicators in the general database of the Pathology Department of Imola Health District in northern Italy. In the current paper, we present the rationale and definitions of indicators of diagnostic performance (total Pap smears and rate of unsatisfactory Pap smears, distribution by cytology class reported, rate of patients without timely follow-up, detection rate, positive predictive value, distribution of cytology classes reported by histology diagnosis, and distribution of cases of CIN and carcinoma registered by detection modality) as well as the results of their application in the same database as above.
