• abnormalities
  • Screening during this period may show this immune reaction and repair as mild abnormalities, which are usually not associated with cervical cancer, but could cause the patient stress and result in further tests and possible treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • smear
  • The Bethesda system (TBS) is a system for reporting cervical or vaginal cytologic diagnoses, used for reporting Pap smear results. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Papanicolaou test (abbreviated as Pap test, also known as Pap smear, cervical smear, or smear test) is a method of cervical screening used to detect potentially pre-cancerous and cancerous processes in the cervix (opening of the uterus or womb). (wikipedia.org)
  • A Pap smear is performed by opening the vaginal canal with a speculum, then collecting cells at the outer opening of the cervix at the transformation zone (where the outer squamous cervical cells meet the inner glandular endocervical cells). (wikipedia.org)
  • second
  • Nayar R, Solomon D. Second edition of 'The Bethesda System for reporting cervical cytology' - Atlas, website, and Bethesda interobserver reproducibility project. (wikipedia.org)
  • arch
  • On its anterior surface is an oval or nearly circular facet for articulation with that on the anterior arch of the atlas. (wikipedia.org)
  • The peg has an articular facet at its front and forms part of a joint with the anterior arch of the atlas. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • Of all women with HSIL results, 2% or less have invasive cervical cancer at that time, however about 20% would progress to having invasive cervical cancer without treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • The test remains an effective, widely used method for early detection of pre-cancer and cervical cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cervical cancer usually takes time to develop, so delaying the start of screening a few years poses little risk of missing a potentially precancerous lesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • HPV can be transmitted in sex between females, so those who have only had sex with other females should be screened, although they are at somewhat lower risk for cervical cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • alignment
  • For over 40 years, millions of people have benefited from the Atlas Orthogonal spinal adjustment and it has become highly regarded among Neurologists, Medical Doctors, TMJ specialists, and the general public as a safe, gentle, and effective method to restore proper Atlas alignment, reduce pain, and improve general health and well-being. (thevitalenergycenter.com)
  • We conclude that restoration of Atlas alignment is associated with marked reductions in blood pressure similar to the use of two-drug combination therapy. (ucmonograph.org)
  • correction
  • The specific Atlas Orthogonal Images are analyzed to determine each person's unique misalignment and formula for correction thereby allowing for a very gentle and precise atlas correction. (thevitalenergycenter.com)
  • The atlas correction is made using the Sweat Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting Instrument: a high-tech percussion adjusting instrument developed Dr. Roy Sweat and engineers at Georgia Tech University in the early 70's. (thevitalenergycenter.com)
