Comparing the conventional diagnosis with the mathematical diagnosis it is observed that the latter correctly diagnose normal, LSIL and HSIL cells, and further provides a quantitative diagnostic for ASCUS cells. There were included 2 ASCUS, in order to show how these cells can show a normal or an L-SIL behavior
