Hemangiomas are common congenital lesions that may have devastating sequelae. The extent and location of a lesion determines the therapeutic approach. We describe 11 patients with mucocutaneous or peripheral soft-tissue hemangiomas to illustrate the ability of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to define clearly and noninvasively the extent and anatomic relationships of hemangiomas. The major advantage of MR imaging over computed tomography or angiography is the exquisite difference in contrast… CONTINUE READING
