Abstract

In the article [1] the period of the study in the section abstract and material and method was written wrongly the correct period of study is 1959 to 2000 (instead of 1965 to 2000). Hence the first line of abstract will read as “A retrospective review of 281 patients who had been treated with brachytherapy for stage I or II tongue cancer between 1959 and 2000 was performed.” The first line of material and method will read as “Between 1965 and 2000, 281 patients with stage I or II tongue cancer were treated with interstitial brachytherapy using low-dose-rate sources and, thereafter, were followed-up for more than 10 years at the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Oncology, Tokyo Medical and Dental University Hospital.”
