Well dr I got my results from the Doppler and was wondering if I post what it says can you please help me try to understand it. I know that I have CCSVI But dont understand in what way

Findings Right Jugular

The cerebral venous outflow appears patent with no evidence on venous thrombosis. Venous Insufficiency was evident with reflux in the internal Jugular vein at 0 and 90 degrees. The cross sectional areas of the internal jugular vein at 90 degrees is larger than the cross sectional area at 0 degrees resulting in a negative delta (positive result). B mode abnormality noted

Findings left Jugular

The cross sectional areas of the internal jugular vein at 90 degrees is larger than the cross sectional area at 0 degrees resulting in a negative delta (positive result). B mode abnormality noted

CONCLUSION

Venous reflux/insufficiency is noted in the internal jugular veins on the right and left at 0 and 90 degrees. positive values for cross sectional area of the internal jugular veins on the right and left B mode abnormalities noted bilaterally.

Criteria met for CCSVI:3/5

what is venous thrombosis ?

the vein is clotted and has no blood flow

what I dont understand is what veins both right ?

I do not understand this question. try again

What is the cross sectional area ?

the vein is seen end on and looks like something like a circle. a measurement is made of the area of the circle.

Some people post that there veins are 70% 80% 90% closed how do you come up with that number

you measure the diameter or the cross sectional area of the narrowed area and divide it by the diameter or cross sectional area of the normal vein

this would mean what dr. resulting in a negative delta (positive result).

normally subtracting the cross sectional area of the vein standing up from the cross sectional area of the vein lying down equals a positive number.

The zamboni criteria is present if the cross sectional area sitting up is greater than when lying down. That gives a negative delta

B mode abnormality noted ?

This means that something abnormal is seen on the views of the vein, like a stenosis, a valve, a septum, a web.

Any help would be appreciated Dr.

thanks a head of time

my pleasure. hope you understand
