    Six sigma is used to calculate variance % on missed cases in our cytology lab.
    The problem that I see is that a pap smear (ThinPrep Imaging System) is
    counted as .5 with respect to workload volume but as 1 with respect to
    variance % (missed diagnosed case). I think the metric is skewed (against the
    cytotechnologist) using this calculation. Opinions please.
