Just wanted to put out there that Arizona Doppler Specialist does excellent Doppler Sonograms using the Zamboni Protocol, to DX CCSVI, and it is less expensive than the Haake Protocol. Certainly not as thorough, but if you want a basic DX, this is an option.
I had my CCSVI DX by Eric Feigenbutz. To DX CCSVI takes special ultrasound training… you can’t just get it done at your local hospital, sadly.
Also, Arizona Doppler does go to other locations to do US’s… that is how I had mine done, in Seattle in Jan 2011 during an MS mini conference of sorts. So you can always check with them to see if they are going to be in any other locations.
Thanks, my friend. I need to do a video on this — I think it is soooo important for us to be checked for CCSVI (including venous stenosis of head and neck), BUT I’m not advocating TREATING it with angioplasty. We are gathering info now… If you get checked and can send copies of your images, that would be WAY COOL. We don’t know the long-term effects of angioplasty on our delicate veins, and from what I’ve learned so far, I think the problem for us is the PRESSURE that the enlarged IJV’s put on our vagus nerve (not often relieved with angioplasty). Also, stenosis of other veins can contribute to our hydrocephalus. So, Diamox is important, and I’m consulting with, and researching other ways to help our vagus nerve, or at a minimum, help provide some vagus “function” through medication. What a journey we are on! 🙂 Diana
