I saw this information posted on the CKCSC website under their National Specialty:

Thursday, May 7, 2009 12noon
Health Seminar:
Dr. Dominic Marino, accompanied by Dr. Catherine Loughlin, from Long Island
Veterinary Specialists (LIVS) will discuss Syringomyelia , the surgery
associated with SM, medical treatment in lieu of surgery and the results of
their on-going research of MRIs and other current diagnostics that could be
useful in screening dogs, like BAER (hearing) tests, Spiral CT and


Just wondered if anyone was going to it or know if there is anything new that Dr Marino is going to talk about?

I do think both are worth going to hear -- they will always have the latest information from what they are seeing as they are two of the researchers at the forefront of this condition.

I'd say this is very well worth attending for anyone at that event who wants to better understand SM and know what is happening with research. At LIVS they are doing some quite interesting projects too.
