Pathologic and Ultrasonographic feature of cavernous and capillary hemangiomas were correlated with the Computed tomographic (CI) charaacteristics of these two tumors to show that these hemangiomas can be differentiated by their contrast enhancement characterstics Specifically, all five cases of adult cavernous hemangiomas were enhanced proportionately less than extraocular muscles, whereas capillary hemangiomas were enhanced proportionately more than extraocular muscles. The capillary hemangioma that demonstrated the lowest relative enhancement wasin an older child.it may have represented a more mature form of a capillary hemangioma. We correlated these CT findings with the ultrasonographic and pathologic features to explain the differences m these CT characteristics.
