Abstract

Vascular anomalies can occur anywhere in the body, and the majority present in the pediatric population. Accurate classification is essential for proper clinical evaluation, particularly because multidisciplinary care is often required. The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies classification offers a comprehensive classification for all subspecialties. In this review article, we present a magnetic resonance imaging protocol with exemplary cases of the most common types of vascular anomalies in the pediatric trunk and extremities using the current International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies classification.
