The sonogram technician is named Colleen, and she was very competent.
Overall, the testing took about a hour. She started by having me lie flat (supine position), and carefully breathing though my mouth. She placed the ultrasound probe at the base of the venous confluence (near the collar bone) on the right hand side and carefully worked her way upwards.
Later, she switched out the ultrasound probe to a trans-cranial version and then placed it just below my cheekbones in order to examine the vertebral veins.
After the right side was completed, she moved the ultrasound machine to my left side and repeated all the steps.
Then I was tested again sitting upright for all the sames sites (right and left sides, down and up the veins).
I asked her how many CCSVI patients she has done now and she said about 25. Colleen went to Brooklyn to learn Dr. Sclafani's (based on Dr. Zamboni's) protocol for a week. She is using the exact same techniques.
So, for us in the mid-west, it is entirely feasible to have a "real" CCSVI ultrasound test. I was impressed how through and efficient she was.
She answered my numerous questions.
