Most hemangiomas are easily identified without any diagnostic testing. Deeper lesions may require the following diagnostic tests to evaluate the extent of the hemangioma:
• Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - a diagnostic procedure that uses
a combination of large magnets, radiofrequencies, and a computer to
produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body.
• Ultrasound - an imaging technology that uses high frequency sound waves to view internal organs and structures
and produce diagnostic pictures of the human body. Ultrasound is sometimes useful to detect soft tissue masses.
