Understanding Dr. Haacke`s report of my MRV ???

Postby lovebug » Thu Jul 08, 2010 8:44 pm

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.

Dr. Haacke is an MRI specialist and developed the scanning protocols that are recommended for the MRVs. See: http://www.ms-mri.com/potential.php

He has also teamed up with the Hubbard Foundation to provide the detailed analysis and reports on their scans...and has done mine.

See: http://www.hubbardfoundation.org/multiple_sclerosis_description_of_tests.html

Dr. Haacke also testified to the Canadian Subcommittee: http://for-greet.squarespace.com/journal/2010/6/1/the-ccsvi-battle-continues-with-emotional-pleas-to-canadian.html

Basically, he is a good guy to have on your analysis team. :)
Best,
Rosie
