Pinnacle Cervical Cytology Module

PINNACLE Cervical Cytology module is modern, easy to use and highly flexible, and was designed by laboratory staff, specifically for the Cervical Cytology environment, with many user-defined formats and parameters and conforms to the BSCC requirements for laboratory computer systems.

The system can be implemented in a single laboratory or as part of an integrated pathology solution with other PINNACLE modules.

Patient Database

All PINNACLE modules, including Cervical Cytology, are linked to common patient demographic information using the power and flexibility of the ORACLE Relational Database Management System.

Request Entry

Request entry screen layouts are customised for each laboratory and they can also be implemented on a centralised basis. They are designed for maximum ease of use and for enhanced productivity, using coded entry techniques and including the capture of any discipline-specific data such as last menstrual period, contraception method and a number of GP related data items.

Report Entry

Result data entry is accomplished simply and efficiently using a combination of basic text entry, coded data phrases and templates, and also through the use of a sophisticated, integrated word-processing package. In addition to recording the authoriser of the result, up to three screeners can also be identified and recorded with each sample.

Automatic Encoding

PINNACLE supports the use of fully user-defined, automatic disease and topography encoding, based upon local and national standards, including the BSCC guidelines and relevant SNOMED codes. Extensive search and selection facilities from the dictionary are also available for the manual addition of other codes and phrase in complex cases.

Failsafe Call / Recall Functionality

A wide range of specific functions are provided for the laboratory to manage patients within the cervical screening programme such as automatic, multiple letter production using the recall dates maintained by the system. Electronic data transfers to and from the FHSA or CHI systems are also supported.


Accessible within the Cervical Cytology laboratory, across other disciplines or to authorised external users, the enquiry facilities provide fast and secure access to patient result data.

Comprehensive Reporting and Management Information

In addition to the standard reports including workload statistics, data can easily be analysed and reported upon using a range of industry-standard SQL tools including the powerful, data analysis and reporting tools Business Objects and Oracle Discoverer.
