  • Defining the Cervical Transformation Zone and Squamocolumnar Junction: Can We Reach a Common Colposcopic and Histologic Definition? Quality assurance and research in colposcopy and cervical pathology require standardized terminologies and reporting. However, clinical and histologic definitions of the cervical transformation zone (TZ) and squamocolumnar junction (SCJ) vary considerably. This paper report areas of agreement and areas where work is required to standardize the definitions of the TZ and the SCJ. – Olaf Reich, M.D., Sigrid Regauer, M.D., W.G.
