TO THE READERSHIP: An error appeared in the article by Gewirtz et al. (Gewirtz JI, Skidmore A, Smyth MD, et al. Use of fast-sequence spine MRI in pediatric patients. J Neurosurg Pediatr. 2020;26:676–681).
In the Methods section, there were transcription errors in the MRI sequence details for the T2-weighted STIR sequence. The sentence is shown below, with the corrected values in bold.
The protocol consisted of T2-weighted half-Fourier acquisition single-shot turbo spin echo (HASTE; scan time 15 seconds, voxel size 0.7 × 0.7 × 4.0 mm, FOV adjustable to cover full spine, TR 1000 msec, TE 78 msec, integrated parallel imaging technique [IPAT] off, partial-phase Fourier 4/8); T1-weighted turbo spin echo (scan time 45 seconds, voxel size 1.1 × 1.1 × 4.0 mm, FOV adjustable to cover full spine, TR 545 msec, TE 9.4 msec, IPAT 2, partial phase off); and T2-weighted STIR (scan time 59 seconds, voxel size 1.1 × 1.1 × 4.0 mm, FOV adjustable to cover full spine, TR 4080 msec, TE 64 msec, IPAT 3, partial phase off) imaging sessions.
The article has been corrected online as of May 7, 2021.
