Incorrect Numeric Value

JAMA. 2019;321(15):1535. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.4034

In the Diagnostic Test Interpretation entitled “Vibration-Controlled Transient Elastography for Diagnosing Cirrhosis and Staging Hepatic Fibrosis,” published in the November 20, 2018, issue of JAMA,1 a value reported in the Application to This Patient section was incorrect. The third sentence should have read “VCTE is 93% specific for cirrhosis when LSM is greater than the threshold and consistent with other findings of cirrhosis (ie, thrombocytopenia).” This article was corrected online.
