male, 67 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Falx cerebri ossification
     

    The CT scan on axial view shows on the cerebral falx the presence of tissue with the same radiological characteristic of adjacent skull bone.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Tissue characterisation;
