ASCT Reacts to USPSTF's Final Cervical Screening Recommendations
The United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recently released their final recommendations for cervical cancer screening. In addition to the recommendations listed in the preliminary draft, they now include an option for co-testing every 5 years for women between the ages of 21-65.
Following the release of the preliminary draft of the recommendations, which did not include co-testing as an option, ASCT worked with the other member organizations of the Cytopathology Education and Technology Consortium (CETC) to draft a joint response. One of our recommendations was to include co-testing for women between the age of 30-65 as an option. We are glad to see that the task force took the responses they received into consideration and ultimately added it. To view the final USPSTF recommendations click
