First you'll need a script from your Dr. - whether it be your neuro. or a vascular specialist, I'm not sure. I won't be asking my neuro. because he completely tuned me out when I showed him the research...
Also do you know if we need just a regular doppler or the transcranial?
Thanks so much for posting this.. I have an appt. with a local interventional radiologist next week so who knows, maybe I can convince him to write me the scripts. I was worried about having any scans read by those not trained, or even aware of the protocals - which could end up being a complete waste of my time. I'd feel much more comfortable having testing done at Dent, even if it is 4.5 hours away.
I can't wait any longer for Stanford... Having said that, I'm not sure I'd let anybody other than Dr. Dake stent me. So maybe if I have blockage, hopefully I can get angio. in the mean time.
Things shouldn't be this difficult... Then again, nobody but me is looking out for me but me. We just have to make things happen.
