Comparison of Lung Scintigraphy With Multi-Slice Spiral Computed Tomography in the Diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism: Erratum

Throughout the article that appears on pages 424–427 of the July issue, the term “ventilation scan” was erroneously abbreviated as “V/Q scan,” leading to possible confusion with the term “ventilation-perfusion scan,” which was also abbreviated as “V/Q scan.” In the following places, the authors wish to clarify by changing “V/Q scan” to “ventilation scan”:

Page 424: column 1, last line; column 2, 4th line; column 2, in the section heading “Lung Perfusion … ”; and column 2, 4th to last line.

Page 425: column 1, 1st line; under “Scan Interpretation,” lines 2 and 4; under “RESULTS,” lines 2, 3, and 4; and in Figure 1 legend, lines 3 and 4.

Page 426: under “Results of the Patients …,” 1st line; under “Comparison Between V/Q Scan …,” 5th line; and under “DISCUSSION,” 1st paragraph, 4th line and 5th paragraph, 9th line.

In addition, the following errors have been noted: Wei Fang, MD, should be listed as a corresponding author (his email is noted in the Correspondence line as [email protected]); and page 424, last sentence of the first paragraph of the Introduction, “with much radiation exposure.” should be “with much lower radiation exposure.”

These errors have been noted in the online version of the article, which is available at
