Conventional Pap References

All conventional paps are reported with the comment: "Conventional Pap Cytology has been associated with statistically lower detection rates for both low-grade and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions compared with the now-standard liquid-based preparations". The references for this are as follows:
