I think that having the scan done here to conclude stenosis is a thought to save a trip to India if it is not CCSVI. But, the scans can be sent to India as easily as I write this now, and could be used, I would think. A venogram would be the conclusion, and "any" vein doc worth their salt would know what to do with an obstruction (I write that with caveat!).
My understanding is that Yasmeen Sayeed was asking for a release to send the images (from False Creek) to India, prior to scheduling flights, accommodations, and surgeries.
Apollo Hospital, in Channai, is rated higher than most American, or Canadian hospitals by the WHO (whatever that is worth these days). Their doctors are trained at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Guy's/St. Barts, etc., and are top drawer.
I have a radiology connection (by proxy, and nothing definite yet) who is worried about his future because the trend is diagnostics going offshore to India (from Canada), and ultimately, the surgeries will follow. He says that it is already happening.
