first clinic in the U.K to provide scans for CCSVI

Postby sunlounger » Tue Feb 09, 2010 4:22 am

Glasgow Health Solutions actively seeking to offer scanning for CCSVI in the UK in 2010 in both London and Glasgow. The Doppler ultrasound scan required to show the CCSVI abnormalities has been specially adapted and requires specialist training from Prof Zamboni and his team.

It is vital to work with the recognised specialists in this field and we hope to have ultrasound technician trained by Dr Zamboni later this year. The cost of the scans in the UK is still to be finalized but should be around 250 to 300 pounds. We are also liasing with intervention radiologists to develop treatment centres in the UK.

If you wish to register your interest and be kept informed of these developments you can register your interest in our web site.

I am a bit confused... is Sunlounger in some way connected to the testing centre?

I have registered my interest in the testing and am so excited...I hope it will come to fruition, and that this centre will be using the correct protocols. £200-£300 seems very reasonable, if the tests are done properly.

Thanks Sunlounger

Just signed up for information when it becomes available.

How are you getting on. Do you think you will need to go back to Poland for more treatment?

The Essential Health Clinic is run by Dr Tom Gilhooly who has a major interest in treating people with MS. I've seen him on a number of occasions and he has a very open mind when it comes to new treatments. Through him I've been able to try LDN, Sativex, Aimspro and Fampridine to see if they work.

He's been studying the CCSVI research and speaking with Vascular specialists since the beginning of December 09.

I've registered my interest on the website and hope to have a Doppler done around April/May.

He's a caring Doc and I'd recommend him to anyone.

Helen Yates, MSRC Chief Executive said: "MSRC is fully supportive of Essential Health Clinic's efforts to enable scanning for CCSVI in MS patients in the UK. Currently anyone who believes that they have this problem has to go to Europe even just to get scanned, never mind treated. Enabling the scanning to take place here in the UK will represent a big step forward for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis who believe this venous insufficiency problem lies at the root of their MS"

all right that's good SL - but if you don't want to be lumped in with 'we' and 'our' in posts like that, be sure to make it clear that the words are someone else's and you are not affiliated. thx!

Hi all, there is a problem with the registration form page at present on the EHC website, which is being looked into, will let you know when it is back up. However, you can still access the contact form, via the link at the top of all pages.

Does this mean that they are scheduling patients at the moment? I thought that all you could do at the moment was register with the site for newsletters and other CCSVI info.

That's correct Luvsadonut, there is no set date yet for starting scanning.
