General advantages of ultra-high-field MRI at 7 T in cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) imaging have been shown recently. This prospective clinical study (10 adult patients) aims to evaluate signal characteristics of AVM feeders, nidus and drainage using 7 T MRI (TOF, MPRAGE, SWI). AVM feeders, nidus and drainage were evaluated by 2 raters. Additionally, AVMs were segmented manually and signal intensity histograms were calculated for the extracted feeders, nidus and drainage, respectively. As previously shown, 7 T MRI has excellent imaging results regarding vessel delineation in AVMs. However, identification of the AVM architecture remains challenging due to signal heterogeneity.
