This is pretty interesting from CCSVI Brockville on Facebook. Anyone else notice the discrepancy in time when they posted the video? I seem to remember something of the sort last year...
Video and Transcript. Zivadinov discussing problems with testing in Buffalo CCSVI study.
Zivadinov quote from American Academy of Neurology Conference 2010
This study is the one completed in 2009. The results are recently getting press, because the results have just been published in medical journals.
From Zivadinov's video (transcribed by Amy Preston): From Reporter: May I just ask a follow-up? Um It has to do with the 500. You mentioned testing difficulties. What did that mean and could that affect the prevalence rates that you’ve discovered as opposed to some of the other centres?
Zivadinov: “Thank-you for the opportunity for asking this and answering this question because this is something that clearly we did not speak about until now and will be in our clearly peer reviewed paper when we’ll be published. But we believe strongly that the type of the machine you are using is very important for determining certain structures.
The deep cerebral structures are very difficult to determine if not with some specific technology that Dr. Zamboni actually developed and is now commercializing through a commercial company and we believe that this is one of the reasons why our prevalence in certain, in this criteria was definitely lower than in Dr. Zamboni’s work.
We have some experience by using this new technology that has been developed in the meantime. And we see substantially different results. I also want to point out that the training and the reproducibility of scan/ rescan tests in Doppler will be essential because you know that definitely may alter the prevalence of the disease and that’s why I strongly believe that only multi tests will be able to show whether there is you know certain confidence that diagnosis is met.
