Yien Sien Lee, Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Intervention, KK Hospital Singapore


Uterine vascular lesions are rare but potentially life-threatening lesions. These lesions include arteriovenous malformations (AVM), pseudoaneurysms and direct arterial injuries. These diagnoses should be considered in patients with vaginal bleeding, especially if related to pregnancy and/or prior instrumentation Ultrasound (US) is the initial imaging modality for the evaluation of these patients and angiography is performed in cases requiring therapeutic embolization. The objective of this poster is to familiarize the reader with the sonographic features of these lesions.
