Zactly. I think there's going to be 3 or 4 centers participating when this thing gets off the ground very soon. Their work hasn't been stopped in the "halted by other interests" sense of the word, just hanging up on the ethics review board stuff, it's all politics but will all work out in the end, it's just testing after all.
One other thing to keep in mind, that Dr. Haacke is on the research end of this, he doesn't operate or fix anyone, doubt he would even offer advice in that vein. (there I go again with the no-pun-intended). This is more for people to keep in mind they are contributing to the science, plus getting a useful scan to bring to their GP's, Interventional Radiologists, Neuros and start working on a solution. That's half the battle.
