In the Original Investigation titled “Early Trends Among Seven Recommendations From the Choosing Wisely Campaign,”1 published online October 12, 2015, there was an error in the percentage given for ending utilization in the abstract. The last sentence of the Results section of the abstract should have read: “Use of preoperative chest x-rays (0.2% decrease, ending utilization 91.5%; trend estimate, 1.00 [95% CI, 1.00-1.00]; P = .70) and imaging for low back pain (53.7% utilization throughout study; P = .71) remained high with no statistically significant changes.” This article was corrected online.
