Gynecologic Cytology Reproducibility: Lessons from the Bethesda Interobserver Reproducibility Study (BIRST-2) with selected cases

September 27, 2016

Daniel F. I. Kurtycz, MD
Medical Director
University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
Madison, Wisconsin

One of the secondary goals of the 2014 revision of the Bethesda System for Reporting Gynecologic Cytopathology was the performance of an Interobserver Reproducibility Study with the aims of finding out how well volunteer cytologist interpretations of selected images would compare with the interpretations of the “Expert Panel” of system authors and to participant performance in the previous BIRST study (2003). This presentation will examine who participated in the study, how well they did, and areas of perceived difficulty. Illustrative case material will be used to highlight areas of interpretive difficulty.
