Inflammation is increasingly being recognized as contributing to the underlying pathophysiology of cerebral aneurysms and brain arteriovenous malformation. Ferumoxytol is being increasingly used for both its prolonged intravascular imaging characteristics and its utility as an inflammatory marker when imaged in a delayed fashion.We aim to present a reviewarticle on the use of ferumoxytol to assess cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformation. This could potentially help assist the physician in his judgment for intervening, as aneurysms that look macroscopically the samemay behave differently. The authors report no conflicts of interest.
