RE: Clinical magnetic resonance volumetry of the hippocampus in 58 epileptic dogs. Kuwabara et al. Vet Radiol Ultrasound, 1210;51:485–490

There are a few corrections in the above article.

The hippocampal volumes in cubic centimeters should in this article be calculated in the hundredths instead of tenths. The data in the following sections are affected:

  • - Materials and Methods
    • -
       In paragraph 8, this should be the correct findings: 0.03cm3 for 0.50cm3
    • -
       The phrase “…comparatively similar to…” in the sentence “Since our canine hippocampal volumes were comparatively similar to those of humans19,20 (See “Results)…” should be “… approximately one-tenth of…”
  1. Results
    • -
       In paragraph 1, this should be the correct findings: ±0.015 and ±0.030 cm3 and ±0.010 and ±0.021 cm3.
    • -
       In paragraph 2, this should be the correct findings: 0.486 ± 0.104 cm3 and 0.973 ± 0.209 cm3.
    • -
       In paragraph 3, this should be the correct findings: 0.411 ± 0.092 cm3 and 0.822 ± 0.182 cm3.
    • -
       In paragraph 4, this should be the correct findings: 0.416 ± 0.103 (0.393 ± 0.099) cm3, 0.832 ± 0.208 cm3, 0.410 ± 0.091 cm3, and 0.821 ± 0.181 cm3.
  2. Discussion
    • -
       In paragraph 5, this should be the correct findings: 0.486 ± 0.104 cm3, and 0.50 cm3 and 0.03 cm3.
    • -
       The phrase “…was similar to…” in the sentence “On the other hand, the canine hippocampal volume (4.86 ± 1.04 cm3 for unilateral hippocampal volume in control dogs) in the present study was similar to those of human, being 4.90 ± 0.68 cm3 in one report.19,20” should be “…was approximately one-tenth of…”

Also, below is the revised Figure 2 showing the correct hippocampus volume values.
