I think one of the most important things I took away from the presentation was his honest (even humble) admission that at the meeting in Canada as he was looking at films (MRVs?) he would think, "Oh yes, this vein is definitely stenotic, I can see the narrowing..." but then when shown to him from a different angle, surprise, no stenosis. The reverse is also true.
He said -- and he couldn't stress this enough -- that it is critical to have someone who really understands how to interpret test results. Docs and technicians can follow testing protocol but there are only a few people in the country (most notably Dr. Haacke but there are others like Dr. Z in Buffalo) who can accurately interpret the results. He admits that he is not one of them... yet.
Dr. Krolczyk already has 1500 patients and he is only one man.
Excellent presentation overall.
edited to correct minor typo
I was at the 8pm meeting. His honesty was very impressive. He told me that he is vastly approaching 2000 patients! BUT, I did get about the same thing from the seminar as you did, only, now I have even more hope after I met him. I still have the same opinion on ccsvi, only alot more cautious in what i see now. I seen "both sides" of the ccsvi argument, for lack of better words....
