Materials and methods This was a retrospective review of patients 21 years or older who attended Luis Nego Negative Care Center in Lima, Peru, between 2020 and 2021, who underwent cervical dysplasia screening. Parallel form stability was investigated with chi-square tests, as well as phi, contingency, and Cramer's V coefficients. respectively, 1. 87, 1. 0, 1. 0, and 0. 99, respectively, and VIAA were 0. 22, 0. 10, 0. 53, and 0. 10, respectively, with a mean of 0. 05, 0. 53, 0. 10, and 0. 10, respectively. According to 4,503 reports, the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for Pap were 0. 87, 1. 0, 1. 0, 1. 0, and 0. 99.
