Choice of treatment and treatment planning for vascular malformations require accurate characterization of the vascular lesion including its structure, extent, and hemodynamics. The purpose of this work is to apply a recently developed time-resolved CE-MRA technique, CAPR, to perform high spatial and temporal resolution imaging of peripheral vascular malformations that allows for accurate lesion characterization and treatment planning. Twelve patients studies have been performed and imaging evaluation done, which show excellent diagnostic quality time-resolved imaging of vascular malformations of the upper and lower extremity.
