  1. The 2 × 2 confusion matrix and performance metrics for the 8-feature model and common clinopathological variables in the training and validation cohorts. For each variable, the positive condition was recurrence within 10 years. A 2 × 2 matrix for grade in the validation cohort was omitted due to all patients belonging to grade III. Margin status was not shown for either cohort due to almost all patients having negative margins. The threshold used for patient age was 50 years, and the threshold for size was 2 cm
