Errors in Data in Results Section of Abstract and Text

JAMA Cardiol. 2020;5(8):968. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2020.3050

In the Original Investigation titled “Exercise Electrocardiography and Computed Tomography Coronary Angiography for Patients With Suspected Stable Angina Pectoris: A Post Hoc Analysis of the Randomized SCOT-HEART Trial,”1 published online June 3, 2020, errors appeared in the Results section of the abstract and the text. The greatest numerical difference in outcome with computed tomography angiography compared with exercise electrocardiography (ECG) alone was observed for those with inconclusive results of exercise ECG, which was 5 of 285 patients (2%) vs patients 13 of 283 (5%), not 6 of 283 patients (2%) vs patients 18 of 283 (6%). The article has been corrected online.
