We assessed clinical utility of post-contrast CUBE T1 with MSDE preparation in the evaluation of patients with cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). We found improved detectability of vessel wall enhancement and perivascular parenchymal enhancement of abnormal vessels of AVMs on post-contrast CUBE T1 with MSDE, compared with post-contrast 3D FSPGR without MSDE. Post-contrast CUBE T1 with MSDE preparation may be useful to confirm therapeutic effects early after radiotherapy for cerebral AVMs.
