Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported an error. “Angioplasty” in “Imaging modalities” of the “Methods” section should be replaced by “Angiography”.

The sentence should read: Angiography was performed in all c-TA patients, including conventional angiography, CTA, and/or magnet resonance angiography (MRA) as the initial diagnostic modality in 36 (35.6%), 57 (56.4%), and 9 (8.9%), respectively, while 28 (27.7%) patients experienced additional catheter-based angiography for interventional therapy after TA diagnosis by CTA (24.7%, n = 25) and/or MRA (4%, n = 4).

Table 2 has been updated. The correct table is displayed below. The updated percentage is given in bold.
