    The original version of this article unfortunately contained a mistake. There was an error in the last sentence of the article. It should read as “Therefore, we propose to incorporate the current LR-M category into LR-4 and LR-5 using the suffix “M,” as LR-4M or LR-5M categories, to indicate the probability of non-HCC malignancy in each category”.
