Reducing HPV Cross-Contamination Risk in Ultrasound Examinations

Dr David Weber will provide a research overview on vaginal ultrasound probe contamination despite the use of probe covers and Low-Level Disinfection. Dr Craig Meyers will then give his expertise in HPV research. He was the first lab to develop a technique to grow natural High-Risk HPV that causes 90% of cervical cancer and other anogenital cancers. He will discuss how it has been applied in product research to ensure US probe reprocessing effectively kills the virus.
