The authors would like to highlight the overlap in the Background, Methods andDiscussions sections between their article in the Journal of TherapeuticUltrasound[1] and their previous publication in Neurosurgical Focus[2], published and copyrighted by the American Association of Neurosurgeons.The novel aspects of this article [1] are the demonstration of the applicability and usefulness of the targetreconstruction method described in [2], a quantification of target volumes using two novel approaches, and thepublication, in the developing therapeutic focused ultrasound internationalenvironment, of the largest (30 targets) targeting accuracy analysis of MR-guidedfocused technique in functional neurosurgery. Table 1 in the article in [1] has been adapted from Table 1 in the Neurosurgical Focus article [2]. Figure 1 in [1] is also a composite of Figures 2 and 3 in [2]. We apologise to both Publishers, Editors-in-Chiefs of the journals andreaders.
