Dr. Neville's research using IVUS

I can't imagine that we haven't discussed this but I could not find any such thread. This is from Dr. Neville at Georgetown, published in Feb 2012, and involved imaging and treatment of CCSVI.

This study describes initial observations of imaging the cervical venous circulation in patients with MS. There were a substantial number of patients with venous abnormalities; however, there was no comparative normal group. IVUS was critical in differentiating true abnormalities from venous valvular phenomena, which may prove essential in guiding intervention if a causal relationship is proven.
