To the Editor: We wish to notify you and the JAMA readers of undisclosed potential conflicts of interest with respect to an article that we published in JAMA in 20061 and a letter to the editor we published in JAMA in 2007.2

From 2000 to 2007, the Cornell Research Foundation Inc (CRF), a subsidiary of Cornell University, filed patent applications that cover a variety of computer-aided diagnostic methods, including measurement of nodules. These applications are for general diagnostic use. We are listed as co-inventors, among others. Starting in 2001, the CRF licensed certain of these technologies to General Electric and has received royalties. The license agreement was between General Electric and Cornell, the institution listed on the title page. A portion of the royalties are distributed to both of us and to the other co-inventors pursuant to Cornell policy, which in turn is consistent with the Bayh-Dole Act. One patent was issued on September 25, 2007, relating to measuring change in an object in any organ of a mammal using any type of imaging technique.
