Twenty-eight patients had combined conventional drip infusion CT scans. The information about the anatomic location of the lesion, its configuration, its cross-sectional appearance, its vascularity (as determined by dynamic signature curves), and its clinical presentation were considered as a single overall unit. This diagnostic approach allowed a diagnosis to be made on virtually all of these enhancing lesions without resorting to either a digital venous imaging study or angiographic procedure. In 17 of these cases, such an invasive second procedure was performed either to confirm the CT impression as part of this study or as part of a therapeutic embolization procedure.
