4.1
Incorrect diagnosis of an IVM *

4.2
Certain other types of vascular malformation:
  • Venous malformation (developmental venous anomaly)
  • Vein of Galen malformation
  • Capillary malformation/telangiectasis
  • Spinal vascular malformation

4.3
The participant opts out of the audit data collection.



* If any participant is found to have received an incorrect diagnosis of an IVM after review of their CT/MR/angiogram by the register's neuroradiologist(s), they are excluded and their consultant and GP are informed. However, less than 'definite' certainty, as above, does not necessarily exclude a participant, because their management may proceed with this working diagnosis, without further investigation.
