Additional Information

  • The Nongynecologic Cytopathology Education (NGC) Program is an interlaboratory educational opportunity to assess participants’ screening and interpretive skills. The NGC program is unsuitable for proficiency testing as these cases are chosen for their educational value. Cases may incorporate static online images that incorporate radiology and multiple aspects of pathology to enhance the interpretation.
  • Participants can access laboratory reference interpretations and performance for the glass slides within 20 minutes by fax, providing rapid educational feedback, peer comparison, and additional review time.
  • Additional online advanced education cases provide immediate feedback on interpretation selection, follow‑up recommendations, and case‑related educational questions.
  • See system requirements.
