Vascular anomalies encompass a collection of diagnoses that differ greatly in terms of clinical presentation, natural history, imaging findings, and management. The purpose of this article is to review diagnostic imaging findings of vascular malformations and vascular tumors, excluding the central nervous system, that occur beyond childhood. A widely accepted classification system created by the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies provides a framework for this review, focusing on the entities most likely to be encountered by general radiologists, although several rare but clinically important entities are also reviewed.
