Until or unless MS and CCSVI are proven to be one and the same, the only thing that can be seen with an ultrasound doppler of our necks is if we have central venous stenosis. You cannot diagnose MS through a doppler ultrasound of the veins. Not yet anyway. You can diagnose central venous stenosis, specifically CCSVI, which warrants treating in its own right.
Well, not exactly.
If finally an association between MS and CCSVI appears (even if they are shown not to be cause and effect), diagnosis for CCSVI will be used for MS diagnosis. The method is called "Bayesian inference", in case somebody wants to take a look at it.
frodo, this is of value, thanks.
The rest of this thread...perhaps less valuable.
I'd take MrSuccess over Mr. Quayle any day. And over Mr. Rose, too, for that matter. A rose is a rose is a rose is a stink.
