Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of implementing short videos captured by static telecytological applications for remote evaluation of cervical smears prepared by means of liquid-based cytology. The study was performed on representative short videos captured from a total of 404 cervical smears that were transferred via file transfer protocol to password-protected accounts for remote review by three independent cytopathologists. Statistical evaluation of cytological diagnoses detected no significant difference in diagnostic accuracy between the diagnoses proffered on the basis of short videos and digital images. Short videos production by static telecytology applications can be used as an alternative method for telecytological diagnosis of cervical smears, particularly for quality control purposes.
