Less painful method for cervical biopsy

Someone pointed me to this study just published in Obstetrics and Gynecology and reported on by the Doctor's Guide--

URL: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=R

Obstet Gynecol 2002 Dec;100(6):1276-84. "A stiff bristled, spiral-shaped ectocervical brush: a device for transepithelial tissue biopsy(1)."

A new spiral-shaped tissue-sampling brush works as well as a standard cervical punch biopsy for detecting cervical pathology, provided an adequate sample is collected. Moreover, the stiff-bristled ectocervical brush biopsy produces substantially less pain and bleeding for the patient.

The kicker is getting the an adequate sample, so the doctor needs to be well trained. But I thought this might help someone here.
