We won`t move further if there will be only 3 doctors on the world who can see the stenosed veins using Doppler.
From my understanding, Dr Zamboni's tests are not specifically looking for the steniss or occlusion. My understanding is that his test attempt to identify abnormalities in flow (which would most likely be caused by the stenosis etc)
I had DR Zamboni's 5 tests performed here in Australia, by a Dr with no specific training from Zamboni, however he was VERY skilled with Doppler & Neurology (specialised in stroke), and he did manage to identify a reflux in my jugular valve.
So, that was 1 from 5, not 2 from 5 as Zamboni's research would suggest. So I think it will not be impossible for others to independently find the issues.
He actually told me he didn't see any stenosis in my jugulars, and a later MRV of my head and neck did not identify any clear stenosis either.
