The authors of this article, P J Wright and colleagues, have alerted us to an error in the figure illustrating the pathway for managing acute renal colic (14 December, pp 1408-12). The first box should read: “Acute flank pain and symptoms suggesting renal colic—that is: abrupt onset; severe unilateral loin pain radiating to groin and genitals; previous episode(s) of renal colic.” The second footnote should read: “Ultrasound scanning of kidney, ureter, and bladder is now being superseded by spiral computed tomography [not spiral CT urography].”
