Background: It is important to find out the skull's anatomic indices with computed tomography (CT), especially the skull's dimensions according to the patients age and sex, because it can give important results in neurosurgery. We will also describe the skull's parameters among the Kerman population. Method: Of the 2000 CT scans taken after head trauma injury in Kerman province from June 2002 to September 2006, we analyzed 1034 good quality films. The most frequent skull dimensions were…

Frontal Bone is Thicker in Women and Frontal Sinus is Larger in Men: A Morphometric Analysis
TLDR
Women and men had thicker frontal bone, and larger frontal sinuses, respectively, while the authors also analyzed whether gender affected these values.
Applicability of Petro-Occipital Fissure Ossification Pattern for Identification of Age and Sex of Skull base Remnants
TLDR
Evaluation of stage of ossification of POF of dried skulls revealed an age-dependent oSSification that started to complete above sixties in both sexes and become sex-dependent thereafter and that stages of PTO ossify could be applied for forensic identification of sex and age of skull remnants of unknown identity.
The anatomy of Meyer's loop revisited: changing the anatomical paradigm of the temporal loop based on evidence from fiber microdissection.
TLDR
The fiber microdissection technique provides clear evidence that a loop in the anterior temporal region exists, but that this temporal loop is not formed exclusively by the optic radiation.
Ultrasound stylet for non-image-guided ventricular catheterization.
TLDR
The authors have demonstrated the ability of the prototype ultrasound stylet to guide ventricular access in the porcine brain, and the alternative design of the device makes it potentially easy to integrate into the standard workflow for bedside EVD placement.

Average African American Three‐Dimensional Computed Tomography Skull Images: The Potential Clinical Importance of Ethnicity and Sex
The production of average ‘normative’ threedimensional (3D) computed tomography surface images of the bony skull has only recently been explored. The authors wish to determine the effect of using

TLDR
Measurements of the cranial vault were obtained at the frontal and occipital poles, using computerized tomographic scans of 192 White, American Indian, Black and Oriental subjects, finding that most American Indian subjects displayed the F = O pattern, most Black subjects the F less than O pattern and most Orientals the F greater than O patterns.
The normal computed tomogram.
TLDR
The primary aim is to demonstrate as many of the brain structures as possible by the CT examination, using a composite of several CT sections to demonstrate the anatomy seen in each brain section.
Optimal positioning for CT examinations of the skull base. Experimental and clinical studies.
TLDR
To evaluate the most appropriate CT angles for the skull base, four adult phantom skulls of various shapes were examined by CT and the optimum angle for their delineation was determined.
Combined and three-dimensional rendered multimodal data for planning cranial base surgery: a prospective evaluation.
TLDR
A computational technique for the three-dimensional combination and display of multimodality images for planning cranial base surgery showed a significant improvement in the depiction of both individual structures and structural relationships and a more accurate interpretation of this information was possible from the combined images.
Craniofacial growth: a three-dimensional soft-tissue study from 6 years to adulthood.
TLDR
Normal facial growth and development was analyzed through indirect anthropometry in a mixed longitudinal and cross-sectional investigation, suggesting a sexual dimorphism in the timing of soft-tissue facial growth, but an overall similar attainment of different adult dimensions.
Alternative methods for assessing growth in children under five years of age.
TLDR
It is established that cephalic, thoracic and pelvic dimensions significantly correlate positively with weight as age does but their indices remained relatively constant.

TLDR
Preoperative bone window CT and contrast-enhanced images offer the opportunity to identify traits of tumor biology, such as bony destruction of the internal auditory canal, tumor shape and cyst formation, and aspects with predictive importance for postoperative outcome.
