What are the cost involved if your Canadian and get checked for CCSVI at False Creek? What accommodations are arranged if you are from out of town, and what are the fees involved? :D

Doppler and MRV costs $2350. I have no idea of accommodation arrangements. I was scanned at FC, and have no criticism of them in any way, but save your money for a business class upgrade on a trip to Poland, Bulgaria, Egypt. There is little to gain from confirming what you are already pretty certain of, in my humble opinion. There is no treatment available in Canada, and your scans will be next to useless in pursuing intervention.

When I was at false creek getting imaged I was told that the doppler was getting much better results and cost less than $500.

Zamboni aslo recently spoke out against mrv.
