SUMMARY: 
MammaPrint-FFPE indices showed a high correlation with the matching indices for fresh tissue samples (r Z 0.917; 95% CI, 0.893e0.936) (Figure 3). Concordance of categorical low-risk and high-risk classification was 91.5% (95% CI, 86.9%e94.5%) in this validation set; the NPA was 91.3% (95% CI, 84.4%e95.4%) and the PPA was 91.6% (95% CI, 84.8%e95.5%). A k score of 0.82 (95% CI, 0.74e0.89) indicated “an almost perfect agreement”.
