Strandness's Duplex Scanning in Vascular Disorders
By R. Eugene Zierler
The supraclavicular subclavian vein can be difficult to image, but a midrange transducer with a small footprint is ideal for visualizing this important segment. This is a common location for a venous stenosis as the subclavian vein curves to join with the internal jugular vein and becomes the innominate vein (see Fig. 18.4). There is often ...
Distinction between acute disseminated encephalomyelitis and acute multiple sclerosis is often clinically difficult. Perivenous demyelination is the pathological hallmark of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, whereas confluent demyelination is the hallmark of acute multiple sclerosis. We investigated whether perivenous demyelination versus confluent demyelination distinguishes acute disseminated encephalomyelitis from ...
9:05 - 9:20 am: SPECT and PECT perfusion changes after CCSVI restoration - Paolo Zamboni
•Define use of cerebral SPECT and PECT in relation to restricted venous outflow through the internal jugular vein
•Describe qualitative and quantitative criteria for assessment of cerebral venous outflow normalized to inflow in vein collaterals and in the major venous routes.
•Discuss modality of SPECT and PECT quantification respect to normal data ...
This researcher -- who I won't name because it could lead MS patients to hound him for immediate details -- said he had developed a high-throughput screen for drugs that could induce remyelination of MS-damaged nerve fibers.
Employed on 1,000 readily available drug compounds, the top hit turned out to be a nationally advertised drug available in supermarkets.
He mentioned it here during a talk at ...
