University of Arkansas
  Purpose
To develop a non-invasive, simple and affordable, measurement technique to differentiate hemangiomas from subtypes of VMS. The purpose of this study is to determine the best office based diagnositc instrument for differentiating the subtype of vascular lesions. The instrument must be simple and affordable so it can be used by primary car physicians in the doctor office. The procedure will be based on non-invasive and unharmful measurements that will be compared to the diagnosis from specialized physicians in this field and the final pathology.

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 75 Years   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Subjects with vascular lesions from the patient populations at Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) will be recruited for the study. Approximately 45 subjects from Arkansas Children's Hospital and approximately 10 subjects from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences will be recruited for a total of 55.
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Suspected Hemangioma, Vascular Malformations (VMS) including venular Malformations (port-wine stain, PWS), Venous Malformations, Lymphatic Malformations, Arteriovenous Malformations or mixed malformations.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • All pregnant individuals will be excluded, since physiologic changes of pregnancy could alter characteristics of the vascular lesion.
