Abstract

The therapeutic approach to cerebral arteriovenous malformations has been modified with the availability of stereotactic radiosurgery, initially, the main indications of radiosurgery were limited, non surgical arteriovenous malformations. Indications are now much more diverse. Imaging plays an important role in the radiosurgical management of arteriovenous malformations and its evaluation. In this review, the different roles of neuroimaging are discussed; characterization of malformations, choice of the best indications, role of embolization, delimitation of the target, evaluation of results and complications of radiosurgery.
