Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that the captions of Figs. 7 and 8 had been erroneously swapped in the article.

Fig. 7
figure1

Gross pathology and microdosimetry for P5. a Pre-treatment T2 FLAIR 1 month prior to therapy. b Formalin-fixed gross pathologic example of involved hemisphere with significant central tumor necrosis. c Microdosimetry showing the absorbed-dose distribution in dog P5 if the dog had survived. At the time of death, only 15% of the absorbed-doses shown had been delivered based on the half-life of 90Y. d Post-explant microCT showing gross distribution of glass microspheres. Image is a maximum intensity projection of 100 microCT slices with a combined thickness of 900 um. A preference for deposition in the peri-necrotic region of tumor can be seen (white arrows). Occasional filling of end-arterioles/capillaries with microspheres can be visualized (red arrow)

Fig. 8

P4 T2 FLAIR at a 1 month pre-treatment, b 1 month post-treatment and c 6 months post-treatment

The figures have now been corrected in the published original article.

In addition, please find the (corrected) figures in this correction for reference.
