Did they use IVUS with you? I thought she said they were not doing it, but I was under the impression that Dr. Sclafani used it and that surprised me that all of the clinics he has trained doctors at are not using it.
Yes, I was the first. No, the IVUS was not available. You have to realize that I had already two previous procedures done, and I had complete venogram images generated from them. Also, Dr. Sichlau had a Zamboni protocol ultrasound done on me, so it was never a question whether I had venous disorders.
I have a follow-up ultrasound exam scheduled on 21 March.
