I have been talking to the Managing Director of the UK branch of an Italian firm developping an ultrasound scanner using an algorithm developed by Prof Zamboni. He has asked me to not quote him or say too much about the company at the moment but he is saying that in a very short space of time there will be affordable private facilities offering a diagnositc test for CCSVI in MS patients.
What you do with the results of the test will still be up to the individual and their relationship with their neurologist or GP, but at least it will be a start.
He has told me that he would let me know when things develop and will fill in the information which he wants to keep under wraps at the moment.

That's great news! Thank you Dovechick and I look forward to further news!...
Wonky, your description of avalanche is spot on - that's just how I feel, and my own personal avalanche started yesterday with a visit to my GP. She was so supportive and excited about CCSVI, saying it's about time something encouraging started to happen for PWMS.
She is referring me to a vascular surgeon! Who knows how it will go from there, but it's a start, and It feels so good to at least have an ally in the UK medical world! :D
