There are some filling defects within the right mid jugular vein, which is likely related to mixing artifact.

Looks like a segment of the right jugular is missing on your pic...if they are not sure why, and just assuming it is due to "mixing artifact" (which means they think the undyed blood is mixing with the dyed blood and not showing up) shouldn't this situation be clarified??? I know they say there is no stenosis, but having a section missing from your right jugular is curious, and should be followed up with doppler or MRV or venography....right?
Since you are in the Bay Area, might these radiologists call Dr. Dake at Stanford?

I did the same thing last November when I've first heard of CCSVI. I went to my GP, discussed this new theory with her and she was totaly in favour but at the clinic where sho works (as well as at any other private clinic in Warsaw) nobody was willing to do dopler ultrasound of jugular veins, simply because they never performed it before so all I was offered was jugular veins CT scan.
According to my CT everything was fine but I did not give up and waited for my appointment in Katowice in February and it showed stenosis in right jugular and reflux in left. This Friday I am ging back to Katowice for MRV and on Monday I will have my treatment.
So, u r absolutely right when u say that it is a waste of time and money to let people who dont know what CCSVI is do the scanning.
