Vascular anomalies include a wide array of abnormal clusters of blood and/or lymph vessels that can be present at birth but can cause concern at any age. Depending on their type, location, and size, they can be as simple as benign growths. In extreme cases, they can be life-threatening. Duke's team of specialists accurately diagnoses vascular malformations and provides the full range of care to children and adults. We develop a comprehensive treatment plan that meets your individual needs.

Ultrasound, X-rays, CT, and MRI
May be used to determine the type and location of the vascular malformation.
We are one of the few centers to use a type of advanced imaging technology called DCE-MRI. It uses a contrast dye to capture accurate images of blood flow in affected tissue.
