Understanding venous hemodynamics is of the utmost importance when studying CCSVI.
"CCSVI is not about architecture, it's about flow."
Dr. Paolo Zamboni said this to me when we first met at his international CCSVI conference in Bologna, Italy in September 2009.
He explained that it was not enough to scan the veins, or use MRV technology, or just look for stenosis. It was essential to understand hemodynamics.
Which is why the knowledge of scientists like Clive Beggs is so important. As an engineer and Professor of Medical Technology, Professor Beggs has insight into the physics of blood flow.

Venous hemodynamics in neurological disorders: an analytical review with hydrodynamic analysis
Clive B Beggs
Venous abnormalities contribute to the pathophysiology of several neurological conditions. This paper reviews the literature regarding venous abnormalities in multiple sclerosis (MS), leukoaraiosis, and normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). The review is supplemented with hydrodynamic analysis to assess the effects on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics and cerebral blood flow (CBF) of venous hypertension in general, and chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) in particular.
