Default Our embolization photo's

Ben's AVM embolization was successful. It was 99% occluded.
The AVM is located in the back right side of his head in the tentorium area of the brain.

These are pics of before and after a detachable coil embolization. The last pic is just a different contrast to see what the coils look like once they're in place.

Hope this helps visualize what actually happens during an embolization.
