Does anyone know anything about AVM's?

I have a 5 yr old with an AVM of her thigh and needs an MRI with contrast, which I am worried about her having because she has to be put to sleep. Any suggestions are welcome.

I also don't know anything about AVM's but I do know that doctor's are fully trained and know what they are talking about. My son had to be put to sleep many times for testing his Cystic Fibrosis accurately. I cried each time and held my own breath but they monitored him like crazy and he has always been fine.
