State-of-the-Art Cervical Cancer Screenings

Dr. James Terzian

The ThinPrep® Imaging System provides increased screening productivity and improved diagnostic performance to benefit women in the Southern Tier.

"Lourdes is committed to providing patients with the best new technology to detect disease early. The ThinPrep® Imaging System enables us to do that," explains James Terzian, M.D. of Twin Tier Pathology Associates. "Using the ThinPrep® Imaging System offers significant improvements over previous screening technologies. We have verified that this innovative System increases sensitivity in the detection of abnormal cells. Making this technology the standard in our practice was simply the right thing to do."The ThinPrep® Imaging System combines revolutionary imaging technology with human interpretive expertise to improve cervical cancer screening efficiency and performance. The Lourdes Laboratory was the first in the area to use the ThinPrep® Imaging System. Lourdes has been offering the ThinPrep® Pap Test since 1997 and leverages the ThinPrep® Imaging System as an enhancement to ThinPrep® Pap Test's improved slide preparation for all cervical cancer screenings.

The ThinPrep® Pap Test is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as "significantly more effective" than the conventional Pap smear for the detection of cervical abnormalities and is the most widely used Pap test in the U.S. The ThinPrep® Pap Test is a liquid-based test that employs a fluid medium to collect and preserve cervical cells. The ThinPrep® Imaging System is the first fully integrated, interactive computer system that assists cytotechnologists and pathologists in the primary screening of ThinPrep® Pap Test slides. Using a complex algorithm, the System's computer pre-screens a slide and identifies the most abnormal cells, allowing cytopathologists and cytotechnologists to focus on the most important fields of view. This feature allows for decreasing the false negative rate and provides more sensitivity to detect positive results.


The laboratory is accredited by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and College of American Pathologists (CAP).
