Incorrect Terminology

JAMA. 2015;313(9):972. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.1037

In the JAMA Clinical Guidelines Synopsis article entitled “Screening for Asymptomatic Carotid Artery Stenosis” published in the January 13, 2015, issue of JAMA (2015;313[2]:192-193. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.16804), the incorrect shortening of “magnetic resonance angiography” to “angiography” appeared twice in the third paragraph of the Discussion. The last sentence of that paragraph should read “Noninvasive studies such as magnetic resonance angiography and computed tomography have risks associated with renal dysfunction, lack some degree of diagnostic accuracy (eg, the specificity for magnetic resonance angiography ranges from 82%-96%), and can still yield substantial numbers of false-positive results.” This article was corrected online.
