WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTIC FINDINGS OF A CRANIAL MENINGIOMA?
This archive will focus on providing images that demonstrate the following characteristic findings of a cranial meningioma:
Dural tail: given the nature of this tumor, and its dural origin, often a “dural tail” can be visualized on imaging that is fairly characteristic of a meningioma.
CSF in the “cleft”: given the nature of the tumor, CSF will often be “trapped” in the area (or “cleft”) between the tumor and the brain.
Example # 1:
