Monitoring and evaluation

HPV triage

  • Around 14,000 HPV triage test are preformed yearly, this number is increasing in recent years.
  • More than half of HPV tests are made due to triage after ASC-US, followed by After HSIL/CIN treatment (24%) and Cytology PIL-NS in women aged 35+ (11%).
  • Our guidelines recommend HPV triage test and another PAP test in 6 months after ASC-US screening diagnosis. 70% of women have an HPV triage test preformed in 8-months period, while around 11% only have another PAP smear.
