Among the screen-detected cancers, 32 % had a 70-gene signature high-risk and 68 % a low-risk tumor, of which 54 % had a ultralow-risk tumor (37 % of total) (Fig. 1a; Table 1). Among the interval cancers, 47 % had a high-risk and 53 % a low-risk tumor, of which 46 % could be defined as ultralow-risk tumor (24 % of total).
