The introduction of MRI in the diagnosis of cerebral space-occupying lesions such as brain tumors, cysts, or intracerebral hemorrhages has improved diagnostic results (4, 5). As a nonivasive method CT was already successful in identifying cerebrovascular malformations (CVMs) (3, 8, 10, 12, 13). In this retrospective study we aimed to assess the value of MRI.
