Table 2 Calibration. Comparisons between the HPF calling performed by the model and the expert decision. \(^{*}\) HPF was detected only by the model but not confirm by the expert. \(^{**}\) HPF was not detected by the model but detected by the expert only. \(^{***}\) no FP nor FN on the whole sample
