dc.description.abstractConclusions regarding the ThinPrep are difficult to make due to the complexity of cervical cancer screening and the lack of adequate outcomebased data. However, current evidence supports the following: the ThinPrep is more sensitive than the conventional Papanicolaou (Pap) smear at detecting cervical cancer (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A-, based on 1 large validating cohort study with a good reference standard and 1 systematic review). There is insufficient evidence to recommend 1 preparation over the other (SOR: B-, based on several systematic reviews that include studies with poor reference standards).eng
