MS & CCSVI

Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) remains a research based cause for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). At AIM we perform a complete contrast enhanced 'traditional' MS MRI study of the brain and cervical cord in addition to CCSVI research protocol. Currently in the medical literature, the cause and effect of CCVSI and MS remains uncertain.
