In the article titled “Principles of lung cancer screening – low-dose computerized tomography”, published on pages 3-16, Issue 1, Volume 9 in Hamdan Medical Journal,[1] the term “false discovery rate” was erroneously mentioned as “false-positive rate” on page 9, 5th and 6th line, under “Risk models as a means of improving efficacy and reducing the false-positive rate” paragraph.

The correct statement should be read as “NLST inclusion criteria (asymptomatic individuals aged 55–74 years with a smoking history of at least 30 pack-years of smoking and no more than 15 years since quitting) worked for the trial, but the resulting false discovery rate (96.4%) was rather high. Reduction of the high false discovery rate of LDCT screening regimen and elimination of overdiagnosis due to expected competing causes of death in order to maximize the benefit–harm ratio can be achieved by risk model-based preselection of patients eligible for screening.”

We thank Brady J. McKee for pointing out this mistake.
