Correction to: Intracellular hypoxia measured by F-18 fluoromisonidazole positron emission tomography has prognostic impact in patients with estrogen-receptor positive breast (BRCR-D17-00693)

The original article was published in Breast Cancer Research 2018 20:78


After the publication of this article [1], we noticed that in Fig. 2, the survival curve images (C and D, lower panel) were incorrect. The corrected Fig. 2 is presented below. The correction does not affect in any our results and conclusions.

Survival curves. a Disease-free survival (DFS). b Overall survival (OS). c DFS stratified by estrogen receptor (ER) status. d OS stratified by ER status. The tentative cutoff value of 1.48 separates tumors with higher 18F-fluoromisonidazole tissue-to-blood ratio (TBR high) from those with lower 18F-fluoromisonidazole tissue-to-blood ratio (TBR low)
