Bethesda 2014Dear Colleagues

In the past decade, since the publication of the second edition of the Bethesda Atlas in 2004, much experience has been gained with respect to the use and impact of the Bethesda terminology for cervical cytology in clinical practice. This includes progressive familiarity with morphology on liquid-based preparations, and further insights into HPV biology. We have also seen implementation of HPV vaccination, approval of HPV primary screening, and updated screening and management guidelines for cervical cancer.

This seems to be the right time to develop the third edition of the Bethesda Atlas for cervical cytology. Since minimal changes are anticipated to the reporting system as such, there will not be a consensus meeting in association with this update. Therefore, we have convened a task force comprised of a relatively small group of cytopathologists and clinicians/epidemiologists in order to expeditiously accomplish this task.  Drs. Ritu Nayar and David Wilbur will serve as the editors of the third edition of the atlas.

We invite your input into this process by reviewing and commenting on the updates proposed by the working groups. Please follow the instructions below to provide your input.

The public comment period will remain open until June 15th 2014.

You will need to complete a short demographic survey and  after it  you will  be given the password to take the 12 chapter surveys.
You will only need to do the demographic survey once, and may return multiple times to complete the 12 surveys.

Thank you for your time and valuable input into this process.
