Non Invasive Diagnostics of Congenital Vascular Malformations

  • Massimo Vaghi


Non invasive diagnostic methods include functional tests, morphofunctional tests and imaging. Functional tests include pressure measurement and volume measurement. Morphofunctional tests are given by duplex scan, which is also used successfully during treatment. Imaging methods are mainly computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR).
