"CCSVI Diagnostic Venous Testing beginning in mid-February 2010. Patients may be referred by their neurologists or be self-referred. Core testing will include the following:
• 3 Tesla MRI of the brain with quantitative measurement of the level of iron deposits in the brain on susceptibility-weighted imaging, with a report by a neuroradiologist
• 3 Tesla MRI of the neck aimed at visualization of the jugular, vertebral and other collateral veins, with a report by a neuro-radiologist
• Doppler exam of the head and neck to acquire images of the direction of venous blood flow in different body positions, with a report by a neuroradiologist
• Clinical visit that will provide assessment of patient status, discuss the findings and provide a comprehensive summary report with recommendations for the future

There will also be optional examinations for neuropsychological and rehabilitation assessments, if necessary. Testing for each patient will be done over two days here at Buffalo General Hospital. A new Doppler machine, specifically developed for CCSVI, will be used for all diagnostic procedures. BNAC-JNI will be the first Center in North America to use such a machine, and will begin to provide training for other Centers that have expressed an interest in mastering the art of CCSVI diagnosis."
