GYN CYTOLOGY MODULE
WebPathLab’s new GYN-Cytology module is Bethesda system compliant. With its new Rapid Results Code it increases the efficiency of the cyto-technologist.
The GYN nodule generates labels that can be read directly by molecular testing equipment. It can also interface with molecular testing equipment (such as Hologic’s Panther system) via an ASTM interface to automatically place orders and receive results to be incorporated into the pathology report. The HL7 Engine is required for this interface.
In order to speed up the process for routine screening, WebPathLab provides a rapid results capability where the user selects one value and the system will auto-populate all the pertinent fields in one click. Cases can be selected for QC and escalated to pathologist review.
Diagnostic CodesRapid Results Code
- – Specimen Adequacy – SA
– General Category – GC
– Pathogens – PA
– Reactive/Reparative – RR
– Squamous Cell – SQ
– Glandular Cell – GA
– Diagnostic Code – DX
– Quality Control Codes – QC
– Comments – CO
– Chlamydia Codes – HPV – GC
– Recommendations – RCThe New Module also uses the Rapid Results Codes where 1 code automatically fills out 9 diagnostic codes automatically. The code mnemonics are entered and managed by the user in the dictionary database.
For Example Code Neg12 has:
SA = Satisfactory – T-Zone present
GC = WNL – Negative for Atypia or CA
PA = Candida
RR = Inflammation – Typical Repair
RC = Endocervical Cells in patient age 40 or older
DX = WNL/BCC
