Accuracy has a range. Liquid based cytology is more accurate in comparison but that dosent mean traditional ones are not or completely wrong. The difference isnt huge.

Liquid based cytology with genetic testing for HPV is the best method. If genetic test for HPV is done, following Pap smear can be done after 5years gap.
