Correction to: Muscle B mode ultrasound and shear-wave elastography in idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (SWIM): criterion validation against MRI and muscle biopsy findings in an incident patient cohort

The Original Article was published on 08 August 2022

Correction to: BMC Rheumatology (2022) 6:47. https://doi.org/10.1186/s41927-022-00276-w

Following publication of the original article [1], it was reported that there was an error in the caption for Fig. 1A.

The caption previously read: “Fig. 1A US image showing patchy mild changes in echogenicity with hypoechoic areas and corresponding subcutaneous echogenicity in the vastus lateralis (cross-section) in a 26-year-old with Anti-NXP2.”

The correct caption is: “Fig. 1A Mild increased echogenicity in the vastus lateralis (cross section) and subcutaneous tissue with patches of hypoechogenicity in a 26-year-old with Anti-NXP2 DM.”

The article also contained several typographical errors, which have been corrected.

The original article [1] has been updated.
