Site map of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) » Forum : Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI)

A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.


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.
