A dedicated area to MyLabTMVinco, the unique Product designed for CCSVI diagnosis, is located just after the main entrance area: Esaote is proud to present this innovative product and its new concept to the Radiological world!
I didn't know about a product marketed specifically for CCSVI diagnosis. I'm curious to know how much sharing of information on new technologies, products (and of course IR procedures) happens across the globe? I know there have been symposia and conferences dedicated to CCSVI that were attended by folks from a variety of continents---but do individuals from ECR communicate regularly with ISET faculty and attendees?
I realize Dr.s Zamboni, Sinan, Simka and others (my apologies for names I'm leaving out) speak often with doctors who were at ISET (I know Zamboni was at ISET so he covered both events) but I'm curious to hear how much of that actually happens.
it happens all the time. we are international colleagues. we invite each other to share our experiences and insights. This summer i convened a symposium in three weeks. Dr Petrov, Sinan, Costa Ricans, Mexicans, Americans, Canadians worked together in just three weeks of preparations.
Also this summer I was in china with leadership of Society of Interventional Radiology SIR (american) , CIRSE Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe, JSIR- Japanese Society of Interventional Radiology, CSIR- Chinese Society of Interventional Radiology...unfortunately, the representatives from Antarcica were unable to attend because of a snow storm. I can tell you that among the highest topics was CCSVI
Just as patient advocates have crossed boundaries at the speed of electrons, so too do your physicians communicate in the same way.
