This section provides a list of potential sequences that can be used to collect data on arteries, veins, flow and iron content in the body for the CCSVI/SWI study.
The radiologist will know how to run the following scans:
# a 2D time-of-flight MRV through the head and neck down to the subclavian
# a time resolved MRA/MRV of the head and neck coronally to the aortic arch
# flow quantification through the straight sinus, the jugular (upper and lower) and coronally through the jugular/subclavian and brachiocephalic veins in one plane, to check for reflux flow and slow flow
# SWI if available to check for the small venous structures and iron content
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THESE PROTOCOLS COME FROM A SIEMENS SCANNER THEY ARE VALID FOR ALL MANUFACTURERS SYSTEMS
