Diagnosing vascular anomalies in infants and children
Your child’s first appointment at the Vascular Anomalies Clinic starts with a conversation. Your child’s specialist may recommend tests or imaging, such as genetic tests, ultrasound, MRI and in some cases, a biopsy (tissue sampling). Then, a diagnosis is made. We take the time to explain your child’s diagnosis and answer your questions – big and small.

- Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
