  • NOTE: The model simulated with equal FIT characteristics had a GOF of 56.3, compared with a GOF of 0.0008 in the model with gender-specific FIT characteristics, a difference of 56.3.

  • aAn advanced adenoma was defined as an adenoma of 10 mm or greater in size, and/or with 25% or greater villous component and/or high-grade dysplasia.
