Luckily "others" include people trying to get the test done on themselves or loved ones. We personally have an investment to know / find the truth. Or at least head towards it.Lyon wrote:Now, sadly others might not find it interesting enough to even try to repeat his results...
Yes he could, but he would almost be contradicting his own paper.mrshodes40 wrote:If you have ever read whole research papers it often lays out explicitly how they did the testing; that's why. Zamboni can come along and say that this or that test was not done correctly to get the finding, or conversely others can look and say this was done correctly so the finding stands in their mind as accurate.

This is a limitation of our study because the assessment of the reproducibility of the proposed protocol, although beyond the aim of the present study, certainly deserves further investigation. However, it should be noted that the our ultrasonic assessment can be easily performed in the clinical setting, and, despite the operator-dependency of ultrasounds, there is general agreement on the proposed technique.

I am more worried about if those trying to achieve the same results, hoping for the same results, almost cheating for the same results, do not repeat the results. although I would guess not an easy thing to fix (vascular valves).mrhodes40 wrote:I am a person who worries about things.
my point was that others might try to do something else to contradict the results; ie some other test the new author wants to offer as similar or otherwise equal when it is not. (worry, worry )
Thanks for the post. This is a really fascinating study but my first thought went to the "chicken and egg" question. Is this cause or effect? I'm staying tuned.
OK, I got a call back from the Dr himself today.CureOrBust wrote:She said she would contact someone from the Dr's team, to get back to me. I didn't get a call today.
