I want to check if I have CCSVI. What tests do I need to ask my doctor for?

My Evidence

This might sound foolishly romantic, pathetic and naive, but to me, one conclusive evidence for the CCSVI paradigm is what the CTV show revealed: The love of Dr. Zamboni to his wife as a motor to his studies. In a quite logical way, at least to me, this really is a quite weightily fact. The conclusion is: Let's assume (for a very VERY short moment :wink:) that ...

MS expert questions CCSVI...

11-25-2009: The Ottawa Citizen reports that MS expert downplays Italian surgeon’s treatment. With all due respect to Dr. Freedman, I think MS patients have absolutely nothing to lose by testing themselves to see if indeed they have partially or completely blocked veins. I come from a family of doctors and while I am cautious, the cost benefit analysis suggests that you have nothing to lose by testing yourself. These doctors should disclose their research grants ...

CCSVI

Does anyone have the particulars for the MRI and doppler tests regarding CCSVI? I have been trying to get into the UB study but I am sure that they are inundated with calls given the recent W5 program. I was thinking about having the MRI and doppler done myself and submitting the results for review but I wanted to get the particulars before I try and book anything. Any help would be appreciated.

requirements for CCSVI procedure

Folks,

I am new to this forum.

* I would like to know if being diagnosed with MS is a must to have this procedure?

* What if few other issues that behave like MS are indeed caused by CCSVI?
(e.g. fibrymyalgiz)

* It is possible that CCSVI leads to different types of issues depending the area and level of insufficiency?

* Is it not enough if the scan shows deformity and the patient has ...
