You are correct, SWI is not a requirement for the diagnosis of CCSVI. I personally want one mostly as a "baseline", and if possible to send back to assist Dr Haake with his research.Downunder wrote:I didn't think we also needed SWI.

Not only a special probe, but a technique not all sonographers will be familiar with. AND if you read the document explaining how to do Zamboni's tests, they actually use configurations that I would guess are not the standard settings used for these tests, and hence they were explicitly stated in the published paper.hwebb wrote:For all those people getting a Doppler check, be aware that most places can check your neck, but to check your head requires a special probe (transcranial probe). For this reason, you may need to go elsewhere to get your head checked. So if the Doppler analyst says "everything looks normal"....confirm whether they have checked BOTH your neck and head.
