Objectives : To evaluate the utility of distal augmentation in the diagnosis of intramuscular hemangiomas. Materials and Methods : A total of four patients were studied with a clinical suspicion of hemangioma. These patients were evaluated on B mode and color Doppler ultrasound and the findings were correlated with that of histopathology and surgery. Results : The sensitivity of distal flow augmentation in the diagnosis of superficial flow was noted. The procedure proved to be a useful adjunct to clinical examination and other Doppler findings in the diagnosis of these lesions. Conclusion : The procedure is non invasive, safe, practicable and thus a useful aid in diagnosis.
