Error in Breast Cancer Detection Rate

JAMA Oncol. 2016;2(6):833. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2016.0633

In the Editorial titled “Digital Breast Tomosynthesis: A Brave New World of Mammography Screening,”1 published online February 18, 2016, there was an error in the breast cancer detection rates in the last sentence of the fifth paragraph. The sentence should have read “Similar adjustments for the second DBT screening round give BC detection rates of 4.2 per 1000 vs the reported 6.2 per 1000.” This article was corrected online.
