Abstract


The classification and imaging appearances of vascular masses of the head and neck are reviewed. The radiological appearances of congenital vascular masses (infantile haemangiomas and other congenital vascular tumours, high-flow and low-flow vascular malformations), acquired vascular masses (benign and malignant tumours, non-neoplastic lesions) and other hypervascular masses are described and illustrated.

This is an abstract presented in the 33rd Iranian congress of radiology (ICR) and the 15th congress of Iranian radiographic science association (IRSA).
