This is a gross mis-characterization. The study in which Doepp was lead author included Drs. Valdueza, Schmierer and Schreiber, all experts in ultrasonography of cerebral blood vessels, all all referenced by Dr. Zamboni himself in his papers. Similarly, the other unpopular studies have had vascular experts working on them.

Not surprise at all - the letter has no abstract online, because it is a letter, not an article. The entire letter is online, but you need a subscription to the journal. Just because Dr. Zamboni says increased cerebral blood flow actually indicates cerebral venous insufficiency does not make it so. This makes little sense anyway - higher blood flow actually indicates venous insufficiency, a condition of impaired blood flow?
.just a collar, and a readout. It is cost-efficient and operator independent,
A strain gauge operator independent? Please.
