I must disagree. I think Dr. Godley must not let a baseless slander go unchallenged. If the accuser can back up his accusations then he should do so. The good name of someone in a profession is valuable as is the good name of an institution. People who read statements in internet message forums can attempt to verify what they read independently but shouldn't be falsely alarmed by someone who might have a grudge or just likes to defame people. Without further information I'd believe Dr. Godley over an anonymous poster's claims. Dr. Godley has a reputation to maintain; the poster can say anything, true or false.
That's my opinion.

In my opinion continuing your work and ignoring the odd bitter person would be a better representation of a professional image. People are often bitter with MS and look to attack anything. I've seen it many times, I mean this disease is devastating and just ruins lives. But personally jumping on and arguing with them does not help your professional image.

Your opinion is not factual, and you are creating a great deal of stress and damage to the hopes and aspirations of people suffering with MS by posting these types of destructive messages.

6 patients have significant narrowing of the Internal Jugulars on MRV.
15 patients have other venous abnormalities that may or may not be pathologically significant.
So we are finding abnormalities.

happy_canuck wrote:I disagree. The accusations went well beyond what we see here as healthy debate of CCSVI and availability of testing and treatment. They were made by someone who registered only to post them, not the normal give-and-take we deal with from time to time. Unchallenged, these accusations take on the semblance of truth. Not only did the poster attack the physician providing diagnostic services, he or she attacked the clinic and its whole premise for conducting CCSVI diagnostics.
This is not the last of this type of sabotage we will see, unfortunately. You know we have seen people already try to influence stock prices by posting speculation about CCSVI. If this poster is trying to delay CCSVI availability, a good target would be False Creek, which is the primary provider of testing in Canada. A few of us tried to ask the poster to remove the wild accusations, which did nothing. Dr. Godley needed to step in and I encourage him to take legal steps as well, if he can.
goddles wrote:In Canada unlike the US it is difficult to access a MRI machine that has the software and sensitivity such as a 3TESLA. for CCSVI
I believe the only place offering clinical studies that is not research based in Canada is in Vancouver which has the only 3T MRI offered to the public.
A shame really
