Two errors persisted to final publication in this paper by Hans Wauters and colleagues (21 October, pp 998-9). The sixth paragraph of the subjects, methods, and results section should start: “We calculated sensitivity and positive predictive [not prospective] values …” In the next paragraph the reference to the table is wrong—the data in that paragraph are not shown in the table.
