A comparison of detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes, classified hierarchically according to cancer risk (HPV16>HPV18>other carcinogenic HPV>non-carcinogenic HPV>HPV negative), for clinician-collected and self-collected specimens from women living in the Mississippi Delta
Self collected
