Cancer Prev Res (Phila). 2023 May 1;16(5):281-291. doi: 10.1158/1940-6207.CAPR-22-0460.


In this prospective population-based cohort study, we show the improved performance of a new risk assessment model compared with a gold-standard model (BCRAT). The classification of at-risk women using this new model highlights the opportunity to improve risk stratification and implement existing clinical risk-reduction interventions.
