In a letter in the May issue (1), a change made in the editorial office altered the meaning of the first sentence. This sentence should read: "In their recent article, Ettinger and colleagues  state that in untreated women or women given calcium supplements, a mean decrease in spinal trabecular mineral content by quantitative computed tomography (QCAT) occurred 9.0% and 10.5% respectively over the two-year study."
