Would you prefer pet scan over angiogram? This is for an avm on my left forehead. I finished MRI and mra. We want to make sure which one is better.

In brief: Angiogram

For an avm, after MRI and mra, an angiogram would be the most appropriate next test, generally to evaluate options for treatment, i.
e. Surgery versus embolization.

In brief: Angiogram

Angiogram because depending on size of avm , may be able to treat at the same time.

In brief: See below

Angiograms are specifically for showing details of vascular anatomy.
Pet, as i understand it, tests function of different areas.
