Hi everyone, As previously posted, we have a 16 year old daughter who has just been diagnosed. Prior to beginning a drug treatment, we are hoping to have her scanned for CCSVI. We have spoken with Don Hamilton at Hamilton Smith Consulting (as per a previous post by Anned) and understand that we could fly to Toronto, drive to Buffalo and have the scan done within days. This seems too easy, in light of all the barriers we have encountered in the last few days, regarding getting the scan. Does anyone have any further information or know something we may not? We live near Halifax, Nova Scotia, and there are no scans available here at the present time.
It was explained to me by Don Hamilton that the procedure done is an MRI of the carotid vein, an MRV of the juggler vein and an MRV of the azygous vein. Not doppler like Zambobi. We are trying to get any info we can as to whether this is legitimate. Thanks! We feel time is of the essence, but also need to proceed cautiously. Annad...have you had your scan done? May I inquire as to the results and the next steps?
