The original thread started by CCSVI Atlanta was closed because it violated TIMS policy (it promoted a paid service). I think it's important that we all have as much info as possible about our different options so I'm starting a new thread that lives within the rules.
Below, I've edited up some of the pertinent info originally posted by CCSVI Atlanta and some they gave me in a PM in answer to one of my questions:
In the beginning of the year some of our staff were invited to the CCSVI conference in Hamilton, ON that Dr. Zamboni and others attended. We met with Dr. Zamboni and expressed our interest in setting up an ultrasound diagnostic facility for CCSVI.
CCSVI Atlanta has begun Doppler ultrasound testing for CCSVI as per Dr. Zamboni's protocols...
Our Sonographer and MD did recently attend the first week-long training at BNAC where they trained on the equipment and Dr. Zamboni's protocols for evaluating CCSVI, and as part of their training evaluated MS patients.
...part of initial training and continuing training included and still includes scanning normals.
They are now finishing up an additional two week long in-house training here in Atlanta, and are ready to go.
I don't live in the Atlanta area, but I'm 9 months out from stent placement so I may go out there to get scanned just to see what's what at this point. If anyone else goes please post your experiences on this thread. Since CCSVI Atlanta came to TIMS and was willing to answer a few questions I had, maybe they will hang around and answer questions on this thread about CCSVI as they begin to see patients and learn more, just as Dr. Sclafani has done on his thread.
If you want to contact them directly, the number they originally posted is 404-941-2000.
