Welcome to the ASCCP open comments site for recommendations on new standards of colposcopy practice in the United States. The recommendations were developed by four working groups consisting of ASCCP members covering the areas of: terminology, risk, procedures and adjuncts and quality control measures. Each group took an evidence based approach using literature research, data abstraction and expert opinion when data was limited.
ASCCP welcomes all comments and strongly encourages invitees to comment in the areas where they feel the recommendations need modifications.
