Dr. Zivadov ...... a Neurologist ...... DID NOT .... have the authority from BNAC .... to do more than perform NON - INVASIVE .... testing.
This makes sense to me. I think this was an attempt to replicate Zamboni's results, not of the later endovascular study but the earlier doppler ultrasound imaging-only results. With Dr. Zivadinov not being an expert at transcranial ultrasound doppler, he went with MRIs for the imaging.
Dr. Haacke's MRV protocol was released in October of 2009, if my memory approximately serves. Dr. Zivadinov's research had begun in the spring of 09. He was the first one at it but his instrument (MRI) was not yet refined....
There is also "fusion imaging" as discussed in this:
Anyone understand if fusion imaging has potential in CCSVI imaging/research? It's a "real-time combination of ultrasound and second modality" (second modality being MRV).
