Four cases of pelvic arteriovenous malformations (AVM) were diagnosed and managed by CT, angiography, and embolotherapy. CT was used to determine the size, extent, and vascularity of each AVM and the involvement of adjacent organs. Thus CT was pivotal in the choice between surgical extirpation or embolotherapy. CT was also useful in monitoring patients following therapy.
