In "Study: Multislice CT provides safe detection of coronary heart disease" in the June 2nd issue of Health Imaging News, there was a factual error. It was incorrectly stated that according to the study findings "the predictive values for detecting significant lesions of greater than 50 percent narrowing for multislice CT compared to invasive coronary angiography were: 95 percent for segment-based sensitivity, 98 percent for specificity, and 87 percent for positive and negative predictive values." We'd like to clarify that in actuality the percentage for negative predictive values was 87 percent and for positive predictive values it was 99 percent.
