  1. T is the treatment threshold corresponding to the minimum reduction in absolute risk required to consider opting for treatment. The units are the equivalent of the number of deaths per patient. The "advantage of prediction" column shows the increment in net benefit of prediction compared to the better of "treat all" and "treat none".
