... look at blood and csf flow in and out of the cranial vault?
Dr. Rosa in New York is mentioned often as he is involved in a specific study. I wish I could see Dr. Rosa simply as patient (not in the study), but travel time and expense prevent it from my home base.
Does anyone know of any others on this forefront we could add to the list? I believe there are Fonar upright machines located in Florida and Alabama, but I'm not aware of any docs looking at the CCSVI/csf flow angle in that are who uses them on patients. Particularly chiro's who would possibly manipulate the atlas or other bones if it appeared it would be beneficial.
I googled but didn't find anything. You could take the information to whatever facility is near you and see if they'd be interested? There are fonar upright machines here in Minneapolis http://www.fonar.com/news/011508.htm
I found a Fonar scanner close to where I live in Australia (Blacktown, <50K from sydney), and sent the clinic / site an email with a link to the published research asking if they were prepared to attempt the same. I got no response; but didn't follow it up. Maybe someone else here in Australia would like to take a swing at it (and let us know). I am guessing its an expensive piece of kit that the owners would like any excuse to use it in anger, and maybe find a new income stream to help cover its purchase price over a standard MRI.
