Thanks for posting the info, Paul. I have a simple question - Does this clinic use IntraVascular UltraSound (IVUS) in the diagnosis ???
The reason for using both tools is that Catheter Venograms may miss some instances of stenosis, which are detected with IVUS. Also sizing of balloons to treat vein valve problems is usually more accurate with IVUS. I recommend that catheter venography and IVUS are used. As we have to pay for this I want pwMS to get a full diagnosis. See Gold Standard thread and IVUS thread for more info.
