Patient
female, 57 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Skull CT without contrast

    Skull CT without contrast. Soft tissue window. Thickening of the skull with an intracraneal mass effect, producing displacement of the middle line.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Skull CT without contrast

    Skull CT without contrast. Osseous window. Sclerotic reaction of the bone, spiculated morphology, with a comb appearance.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    3D cranial reconstruction

    Assymetry and the deformity of the skull.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    MR study

    Sagittal FSE T1, without contrast. Osteoblastic reaction in the frontoparietal area.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    MR study

    Axial FSE Pd. Thin line of cerebrospinal fluid located inside the intracraneal meningeal reaction. Internal displacement of vascular structures.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    MR study

    Axial FSE T2. The mass presents a signal intensity that is similar to that of the grey matter.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR;
     
     
  • Figure 7
    MR study

    Axial FSE T2 FLAIR. Thickening of the meningeal structures under the sclerotic reaction of the bone.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR;
     
     
  • Figure 8
    MR study

    Axial FSE T1, after intravenous contrast administration. Significant and homogeneous enhancement of the extracraneal mass, radial distribution of the enhancement across the skull.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR;
     
     
  • Figure 9
    MR study

    Coronal FSE T1, after intravenous contrast administration. Intracraneal mass effect related to the osseous expansion.
