Over the past six months, we have been in discussion with you and the authors of a recent publication in NeuroImage: Clinical (Amyloid pathology fingerprint differentiates posttraumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Mohamed AZ, et al. Neuroimaging Clinical 2018 Jun 5;19:716–726). We raised a variety of methodological concerns with Mohamed and colleagues and discussion about these concerns led to their preparation of a corrigendum to be published in NeuroImage: Clinical. We appreciate that the authors were responsive to our concerns and made a number of changes as noted in the corrigendum. Ultimately, however, the corrigendum does not address the primary conclusions of the study, which we were unable to replicate. We are troubled by the publication of results that cannot be replicated using identical methods and participant data. This is a letter to the authors to address these concerns.
