Aneurysm Patient
When a 50-year-old woman with the worst headache of her life became unresponsive, physicians at the Norton Neuroscience Institute ordered a CT scan and angiogram and discovered five brain aneurysms, in addition to aneurismal hemorrhaging. Read More

AVM Patient (Example 1)
A 12-year-old girl experienced sudden onset of a severe headache. CT scans showed bleeding in her brain caused by arteriovenous malformation (AVM), an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins in the brain. Read More

AVM Patient (Example 2)
MRI scans of a 14-year-old girl’s brain showed a large arteriovenous malformation (AVM) on her right frontal lobe, caused by multiple seizures. The girl’s case was presented to a leading neurovascular center, where it was recommended that no treatment be performed due to the high risk involved. Read More

AVM Patient (Example 3)
