Vascular anomalies are classified into vascular tumors (infantile hemangioma) and vascular malformations. Vascular malformations are divided into slow flow and high flow subtypes. Magnetic resonance imaging helps in classification and assessing extent and distribution. Conventional angiography also known as digital subtraction angiography is pivotal in assessment of fine vascular details and treatment planning. Imaging correlates well with histopathology. We review recent development in imaging techniques of various vascular anomalies most of which are affecting the peripheral system which potentially may broaden understanding of their diagnosis, classification and treatment.
