Dr. Carl W. Decker answered:

What is a chiari-brain malformation?

Small back of skull.

Head-brain
Chiari malformations develop due to a decreased size in the back of the skull. Because there is not enough space for the brain to develop, a part of the brain called the cerebellar tonsils get pushed through through the hole where the spinal cord attaches to the brain. This results in increased pressure and development of "cysts" in the spinal cord. Chiari II has additional brain&cord changes.

Could tomography clearly determine if there is a brain malformation ,be it aneurysm or avm?

Unlikely

Aneurysm
A CT scan shows bleeding or skull fractures instead of soft tissue problems like AVM's or brain aneurysms unless they have calcium inside of their walls which is very rare.
