In Table 2, the authors identified the risk factors of nasopharyngeal necrosis using a logistic regression model, and
the final nomogram model was constructed based on these results. However, the outcome of the univariable analysis
and multivariable analysis reported in Table 2 was mistakenly listed as overall survival (HR) and should have been reported as the likelihood of necrosis (OR).

Table 2, column 2 heading reads "Univariable analyses HR (95% CI)" should read "Univariable analyses OR (95% CI)". Table 2, column 4 heading reads "Univariable analyses HR (95% CI)" should read "Multivariable analyses OR (95% CI)".
The authors wish to apologize for this error.
