Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recognize the benefits of a multi/interdisciplinary approach for patients with vascular anomalies

Description:
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 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.
