Susceptibility-Weighted MR Imaging for Diagnosis of Capillary Telangiectasia of the Brain
AJNR 33:715-720, El-Koussy,M.,et al, 2012
See this aricle in Pubmed

Article Abstract
SWI represents a valuable tool for confirmation of presumed BCT. Demonstration of signal-intensity loss on SWI in an enhancing focal brain lesion, otherwise unremarkable on conventional MR images, is highly specific for BCT, thus excluding serious pathology and reassuring the patient and referring physician. This is particularly helpful for BCT in less typical locations.
