Got a reply from Dr Simka
He sent a research paper from the Italian team entitled, The value of cerebral Doppler venous haemodynamics in the assessment of multiple sclerosis. It clearly outlines the procedure for the radiologist.
I wish I knew how to make this PDF available to you all, any suggestions?

Please find attached article by Zamboni's team. At the end of this paper there is description how the examination should be performed. I hope it would be helpful.

Dear Dr Simka,
I am 31 year old woman living in Helsinki, Finland who wasdiagnosed with RRMS less than a year ago. I have followed researchers work intoCCSVI very closely and I'm writing to you in the hope that you can offerme some advice. I have been today to my company doctor and I have secured anappointment for the radiologist this coming Monday for a doppler ultrasoundscan.
I have looked through your power point presentation given atthe Bologna symposium and found it to be very helpful and informative. I'mhoping that you can provide me with some brief instructions for theradiologist. Helpful information would include where to scan and what to scanfor. I have understood that it's rather difficult for radiologists toknow what to look for.
I understand that you are a very busy man and that theresearch is very new but I have read in numerous forums that you have been veryhelpful to other MS sufferers.
So, if you could please provide this information, I will beeternally in your debt.
