A picture of the Doctor's Roundtable, with Dr. Sclafani third from the left, and other notes on ISNVD from Danielle Rheume! Thank you, Danielle!
So what has happened so far at ISNVD? Today was Patient Day, and there was a webinar, and I did not have the day to devote to watching, although I wish I could have! Did anyone catch it who wants to give the highlights?
At the same time as Patient Day, there was a Consensus Workshop on Vascular Imaging in CCSVI: Ultrasound Session led by Dr. Haskal and Dr. Zamboni himself with these presentations:
1:00pm-1:10pm Welcome (Robert Zivadinov, USA)
1:10pm-1:30pm Consensus on US CCSVI screening criteria (Sandra Morovic, ITALY-CROATIA)
1:30pm-1:50pm B-mode abnormalities and wall stenosis in the natural history of MS (Karen Marr, USA)
1:50pm-2:10pm The diagnostic value of CCSVI criteria (Angela Lagace, CANADA)
2:10pm-2:30pm Does thoracic pump influence cerebral venous return? (Erica Menegatti, ITALY)
2:30pm-2:50pm A prospective study comparing ultrasound and angiography (Marian Simka, POLAND)
2:50pm-3:10pm A Hemodynamic Model for Quantification of Cerebral Venous Return (Sandra Morovic, ITALY-CROATIA)
and then a Consensus Workshop on Vascular Imaging in CCSVI: MR Imaging Session led by Dr. Dake and Dr. Haacke.
3:40pm-4:00pm Magnetic resonance imaging CCSVI protocol (J. Joseph Hewett, USA)
4:00pm-4:20pm Morphological MRV multimodal studies in CCSVI (Robert Zivadinov, USA)
4:20pm-4:40pm Flow quantification (Michael D. Dake, USA)
4:40pm-5:00pm MS, MRI database (E. Mark Haacke, USA)
5:00pm-5:20pm Multimodality comparison and jugular entrapment syndrome (Paolo Zamboni, ITALY)
I have learned to pay attention to anything Dr. Zamboni says. At the last ISNVD he brought up plethysmography, which is brilliant. Here he talks about multimodality comparison and jugular entrapment syndrome. I am not finding any easy information on what jugular entrapment syndrome is, or how it might affect our understanding of CCSVI.
