grazie per il tue risposta e benvenuto
Dr. Simka told me that he is unable to scan the azygos vein and I believe this is because of the limitations of the machine he uses. I guess Ferrara and its university have a better machine. But interesting to hear that it is possible to scan the azygos via doppler.
The problem would be that even if we went to a big university in Europe (apart from Ferrara) they would be unable (or unwilling
) to find any stenosis by using the doppler. Even the people doing MRT SWI get no diagnosis but have to send their MRT's to Dr. Simka, Dr. Schelling or Prof. Haacke.
