A leading expert in advanced MRI techniques, Dr. Mark Haacke, is an adjunct professor at McMaster University. He is helping to coordinate an effort in CCSVI at McMaster and St. Josephs's Hospital. This research will help address the CCSVI issue and help people across Canada be more aware of ongoing developments. We hope this will speed up the work of the CCSVI study and perhaps get more sites involved in clinically imaging patients across the country. St. Joseph's Hospital in conjunction with McMaster are currently in the process of obtaining human studies approval for this project.
There is plan to fund the quick start of the study with private donations.
