Testing using the Haacke Protocol

Postby PeteAndStan » Mon May 02, 2011 5:51 pm

Where can people get tested using the full Haacke protocol? I know of the Applied fMRI Institute in San Diego, but are there any other places? I live near Atlanta so that isn't the most convenient place.

Has anyone had luck getting tested locally by having the instructions in hand?

CCSVI Atlanta would be convenient if you are ok getting tested by the full Zamboni criteria (doppler ultrasound) rather than the Haacke Protocol MRV.

MRV has not been impressive in some of the research testing. Ultrasound currently seems to be better (and much cheaper) at finding CCSVI.

All the best to you, Pete and/or Stan :)

I've been tested at CCSVI Atlanta in the past and I've already had the procedure done. It didn't work at all or even made me worse. I have been progressive since onset and I'm not showing any lesion activity after 2 years.

I know I have valvular problems on both sides and I did have reflux in the azygos and IJV before the venoplasty. Afterwards, most of these problems were resolved.

An MRV would provide more new information as to my condition so that's why I'm interested in it.

ah, gotcha
I had my Haacke Protocol MRV done at Dr. Cumming's hospital (HCMC) here in MN. Still not very close to Atlanta. There is much to be said for getting the Haacke protocol MRV over a regular one. There is flow information and imaging of the azygous.
