CCVI - what is the test for this?

I bet this is already in this subforum but couldn't find it. Am a little woozy & confused this morning so forgive me if I'm being repetative. Also, do neuros test for this or vascular specialists?

this is the fellow that has looked at a couple of our TIMS locals:
http://med.stanford.edu/mcr/2008/dake-0618.html

perhaps he can refer you to the right people closer to your location...

this is one part of the answer to your question, and it's from the 'glossary' sticky right at the top of the main ccsvi topic:

Magnetic resonance venography
The type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) used to visualize veins. The MRV uses the same machine as an MRI, but a special computer software allows it to only extract generated-by-blood images, as it flows through the veins. These images give doctors a rough idea of whether blood flow through a vein of interest is affected by blood clots or other disease processes

Welcome eLaurie -

Dake has also gained international recognition for his development of stent-grafting techniques. He will be directing the Catheterization and Angiography Laboratory at Stanford University Medical Center

Dake first came to Stanford in 1990 as section chief of cardiovascular and interventional radiology and co-director of the Catheterization and Angiography Lab. During his 15 years at Stanford, his research primarily focused on endovascular device development and management of aortic pathologies. He is known for his work in the image-guided treatments for arterial disease (hardening of the arteries) and venous disease, which occurs when veins become blocked.
