The site of the lesion in question must be known in advance, so the appropriate view can be chosen for the flow study. Therefore, the appropriate CT or US must be available at time of approval of study by NM resident or staff. This study is ideal for hemangiomas if a multi-headed scanner is used with lesions greater than 1.4 cm and not located near portal vessels. If lesion is small or near major vessels suggest MRI as primary imaging modality to confirm hemangioma.
