Magnets help pancreatitis pain

Please watch this fascinating story on YouTube about a patient with chronic pancreatitis, who found relief in a procedure developed by BIDMC doctors Steven Freedman and Alvaro Pascual-Leone. I wrote about this earlier here, but watching this patient talk about it provides another dimension to the story.

If you can't see the video, click here.

Thanks for sharing! TMS is a very interesting treatment. However, the OCD in me must point out that "alludes" is very different from "eludes"

Is there a medical usage of the word "allude" that I am not aware of, as in the usage "Alludes traditional testing" in the video? Or is it intended to mean "Eludes traditional testing", as to escape from or avoid?

I think it was a mistake.
