It is NOT a confirmed diagnosis of CCSVI syndrome because there has been no selective venogram performed in the report. Selective venograms are required to show stenosis(es) of many veins. A researcher needs to check all major veins to start to document where any restrictions are found and the type of those restrictions.
WHEN such a report is made we will know that CCSVI syndrome occurs in Parkinson's patients NOT before. Science is a slow boring logical process and needs time for research.
Sorry for raining on the parade but someone needed to inject a dose of caution. Please slow down.
Selective venogram can not "show stenosis(es) of many veins". It just show RTG image of the stream of the dye colored blood flowing inside the vein. Stream narrowing does not always mean vessel stenosis.
