Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are a type of vascular anomaly consisting of large intertwined vascular growth (Nidus) that is prone to serious hemorrhaging and can result in patient death if left untreated. Intervention through surgical clipping of feeding and draining vessels to the Nidus is a common treatment. However, identification of which vessels to clip is challenging even to experienced surgeons aided by conventional image guidance systems. The lumped modeling for the Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation (CA VM) hemodynamic analysis is of high importance in clinical world. As part of the treatment planning for CA VM, it is difficult for doctors to assess the NIDUS part, which may get rupture while inserting catheter. In this paper, we have proposed a non-invasive method for assessing the hemodynamic condition of AVM. The measurement of flow and pressure without intervention along the vessel is a big challenge due to occlusion, bending and thinning of the vessel in Arteriovenous Malformation patients. In this paper, we analyzed a lumped model for the vascular malformation using various imaging multi-modalities that help to analyze CA VM Structures.
