Arteriovenous malformation in shoulder with Ingenia 1.5T

Case Study
Leiner, Tim, M.D., Ph.D. UMC Utrecht • Netherlands

Patient history

A 17-year-old male with pulsating mass on right shoulder underwent an examination with the Ingenia 1.5T at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

MR examination

For the examination Ingenia 1.5T was used with the Anterior coil and integrated Posterior coil.
The actual spatial resolution was 1.0 x 1.0 x 1.5 mm3.
dS SENSE parallel imaging was used to achieve 5 fold-acceleration, leading to scan times of 20 sec.

Volume rendering

The coronal source image shows the central thoracic vessels as well as the arteriovenous malformation in the right shoulder. The color volume rendering better depicts the spatial relation between the arteriovenous malformation and the feeding arteries as well the draining veins.

Diagnosis

Arteriovenous malformation in shoulder

Impact of using Ingenia 1.5T

The high spatial resolution allows differentiation of arteries and veins with high confidence. Note the exquisite delineation of anatomy despite imaging at the edge of the field-of-view.
