Unfortunately, there is no formal CCSVI study currently being conducted at St. Mary’s.
What you heard about was in fact a one on one exchange between a patient and a dedicated family physician with an interest in the topic (from what I have been able to gather).
1) Speak to your own family physicians to see whether he/she is familiar with the work currently being conducted in the field. Perhaps he/she can help you book an appointment for a scan, and can help interpret results - or can link you to someone who can.
2) I believe there is currently a formal study being conducted at McMaster (http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/s ... 1/20091121) - you may try getting in touch with someone there. I unfortunately don’t have any additional information.
3) You may try to contact the vascular lab (for imaging/scans of the vascular system) at St. Mary’s hospital (with Michael Baranyai) – but I am afraid they may not have much more information for you. 514 345 3511 ext 3682.
Wishing you both the best,
