In the follow-on research, we recently discovered that the patient-specific geometries used in our manuscript “Computational Predictions of IVC Filter Performance on a Patient-Specific Basis” were not correctly scaled. The inferior vena cava (IVC) geometries were taken from a previous study on patient-specific model reconstruction performed by some of our coauthors [1]. We discovered that, unfortunately, in the study [1] there was a misinterpretation of the slice offset in the DICOM metadata of the original computed tomography scans used to reconstruct the models. Thus, the out-of-plane resolution that was reported in this study, which was used to reconstruct the original patient-specific IVC geometries in [1], is incorrect. In reviewing the original DICOM data, we found that the correct out-of-plane resolutions are 3 mm for the left-sided IVC and 1 mm for the retroaortic IVC, compared with 1.5 mm out-of-plane...
