Flow quantification can also be attained with an MRV, it is not the realm of doppler only.costumenastional wrote:MRV shows the outside and doppler can spot reflux only under a trained eye
Dr Haake has proposed a protocol, the problem is finding a centre capable and willing to perform it. If I am reading it right, it includes flow measurements as well.costumenastional wrote:...or wait until this runs under a worldwide official protocol somehow. Yeah, right.
I had dopplers in Italy, venogram in Australia and dopplers, MRV and venogram in Poland, all within 3 months. The results were all different. The venogram in Poland was relied upon for my treatment and they stented a jugular valve.
This stuff is in its infancy. People are doing the best they can under the circumstances. However, it's going to take a while for a recognised testing and treatment path to be established.
I don't think I'm alone - others have had strange results, too. I think we need to keep going with trial and error - but not to get our hopes too high, nor on the other hand, get too despondent.
