While I was having my MRV and ultrasound done at False Creek in
May I decided to pay the extra $400.00 to have these results sent to Dr. Haacke for further analysis. Well the final report that I was given can be very difficult to understand. Has anybody else encountered this problem as well. There are areas where the results are given in the `discussion` section but the over all flow charts are very difficult to understand. Now what.......
I have to ask - Why would you want to have Dr. Haacke review your medical tests? He isn't a medical doctor. It's Mark Haacke, B.Sc, M.Sc., Ph.D.
All he can do is comment on the technical quality of the work done - his area of expertise.
Dr. Haacke has been doing some specialized type of testing on MS patients to help to prove or disprove Dr.Zamboni`s theory for CCSVI. He does a much more detailed analysis of the MRV`s of MS patients. He has been on the W5 shows and on the news talking about his testing that he has devised for MS patients. The testing I have had done to date has been inconclusive for CCSVI. I had tests done in Buffalo and I was told I had a 2 cm. blockage of the LJV. I than had a high ranking Neuroradiologist in Toronto who looked at my results and he said noooooo on any stenosis. I than went to False Creek and I was told no blockage but that I have a `reflux` problem. Dr. Haccke`s report confirmed once again no blockages but yes on the `reflux` problem. Now I am waiting to get into the Albany Clinic and have the venogram done. The `Gold Standard` or the `Holy Grail` as I like to call it.
