. I'm still working very hard at getting the news out here. I am still trying to get someone interested in doing the doppler ultrasound in St Louis. To me, that seems to be the place to start. The more doctors who get experience with the doppler techniques for CCSVI, then the more EVIDENCE we will have re MS and CCSVI.
So when I visit my interventional radiologist after my Detroit scan, my main talking points will be interpretation of my scan, and doppler ultrasound.

I don't think that puts the cart before the horse. I have a personal experience in how long it takes to get a new medical device to market, including how long it takes to develop it, and I think we should have already started developing stents for Jugulars and large Cerebral spinal veins. Whether or not it is related to MS ( and the evidence is pretty strong and getting stronger)) there seems to be a problem in some people and that should give rise to the need. Large vein stents are likely to be different in their details, and we should start developing them last year at the latest After all we have already seen one stent break loose and migrate, which well may not have happened in an artery.
There are 500,000 MS patients world wide. So even if the intentions are not allustric, there is sufficient incentive to come up with a viable solution.
