Sharon,

I check Haacke's site every day. Boy are you quick !! I like his FAQs except for the one question he doesn't address : when the heck am I going to Detroit to be scanned. Oh, well, patience is a virtue (or is it ?, LOL).

OC - my mom used to tell me that you need to work on patience for it to become a virtue :wink: :wink: I know you are working on it!!

Interesting the file transfer software he has set up on there. Looks like people (other centers) are going to be sharing info through the peer-to-peer transfers. This is good, very good... Sometimes the internet's a good thing...

Mark.

Thanks everyone for keeping on top of this and letting us know.

This sounds very promising and hopefully the medical world is working together more and more.

I agree Mark - it looks to me like Haacke is doing just about everything he can to get other centers to participate. Now it is a matter of getting the information to the centers

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.

Thanks for the link, Sharon and yes, Mark, you are correct. We've been e-mailing the past couple of weeks, and Dr. Haacke is working VERY hard right now to get CCSVI diagnostic centers open around the world. He has been in Europe, across the states and Canada, meeting with radiologists and heads of diagnostic facilities, getting the NICE protocol into their hands. Have powerpoint, will travel.

He believes that establishing the diagnosis and having a specific protocol is the first step- and that once there is worldwide evidence of CCSVI, the treatment will follow.

He's raising funds thru his MS MRI Foundation

and in Canada, at McMaster University

Still 2 days to make that tax deductible donation for 2009!
