Management of Vascular Tumors and Malformations: Lessons Learned from a Vascular Anomalies Center
Saturday, March 02
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Julie Powell, MD, FAAD - Handout
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize the benefits of a multi/interdisciplinary approach for patients with vascular anomalies
- Discuss the role of imaging in the evaluation of these patients
- Assess potential psychosocial issues in patients with these problems
Patients with vascular anomalies often present complex problems requiring multispecialty intervention. A multi/interdisciplinary clinic is the recognized gold-standard for these patients.
A practical approach to the diagnosis and management of common and less common vascular tumors and malformations will be discussed with special emphasis on the role of imaging, diagnostic pitfalls, investigation, a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and psychosocial issues.
Selected cases from our 20-plus years experience as a multidisciplinary team will be presented as well as recent advances. A radiologist will be present to discuss and answer questions about imaging and interventional radiology techniques and a panel will discuss cases and respond to audience questions.
