VBF Free Ultrasound Clinic - Boston
The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF) is proud to host the 2023 VBF Free Ultrasound Clinic in Boston, MA, on Friday, April 21, 2023, with Giacomo Colletti, MD, DDS and Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD.
The free ultrasound clinics are important because upwards of 65% of all vascular birthmarks, anomalies, and/or related syndromes (VBARS) are misdiagnosed based on clinical appearance. This means the wrong therapy is often assigned. The ultrasound is fairly definitive in confirming or refuting a diagnosis. We are seeing about a 25% diagnosis reversal rate with these clinics, so this is an indication that this service is critical for our patients.
If you have a vascular birthmark, anomaly, and/or related syndrome (VBARS), consider registering to have an ultrasound done by Dr. Colletti, one of the leading maxillofacial surgeons in Europe for complex vascular malformations. Dr. Colletti is Associate Professor of Maxillofacial Surgery at UniMORE, Director of VBF Italy and VBF Europe, and Co-Director of VBF Physician Education with Dr. Linda.
