Vascular surgeon, etc

Hi all.

A very good friend of mine is a close friend of a great vascular surgeon for 15 years, now. I was a little shy about contacting him, but my friend did it "spontaneously".

Diminished Visibility of cerebral venous vasculature in MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system characterized by widespread demyelination, axonal loss and gliosis, and neurodegeneration; susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI), through the use of phase information to enhance local susceptibility or T2* contrast, is a relatively new and simple MRI application that can directly image cerebral veins by exploiting venous blood oxygenation. Here, we use high-field SWI at 3.0 Tesla to image 15 patients with clinically definite relapsing-remitting MS and ...

Italian Summit- Venous Function in MS- 9/8/09

Nice e-mail from Dr. Zamboni.

He is inviting other doctors who will, by then, have research to further document CCSVI in MS. A nice opportunity to visit lovely Ferrera, vascular doctors!!!
