Studies...: Angiography can detect the majority of vascular lesions; although a good number of them are detected while undergoing numerous other procedures for other things(ct scans, ultrasounds, etc.).

CTA,MRAngio: The gold standard to diagnose a-v malformations and vascular anomalies is an angiogram. This may be a ctangio, mrangio or selective digital substraction angiography.
