In the article "Diagnostic Accuracy—A New Approach to Its Evaluation," by Drs. Lightstone, Kopf and Garfinkel, in the May issue of the Archives, on page 500, the last sentence of the first paragraph, right-hand column, should read "The index of suspicion is 167% and diagnostic accuracy is 60%."
Also, the tables in the article have not been properly placed. The correct placement of the tables is as follows: Table 1 should follow directly after the second paragraph under the heading "Theoretical Examples . . . ," on page 500. Table 2 should follow directly after the third paragraph under the same heading. Table 3 should follow the fourth paragraph; Table 4, the fifth paragraph; Table 5 is properly placed; Table 6 should follow the first paragraph, right-hand column on page 501; and Table 7 should follow the first full paragraph on page 502.
