The histopathologic and diagnostic imaging characteristics of orbital cavernous hemangioma are compatible with its classification as a type 3 low-flow AVM. Orbital cavernous hemangiomas can be diagnosed with specific CT and/or MR imaging findings, especially using multiphase dynamic contrast scanning, allowing differentiation from simulating vascular malformations, vascular tumors, and other orbital tumors.
