Magnetic Resonance Image of a Skull  
<< Back  
  In late-stage disease of the skull, much of the new bone formation occurs in the outer table, but occasionally it is seen on the skull's inner table. Such large bony masses can lead to brain compression and can be associated with hearing and vision loss. This MRI of the skull demonstrates thickening of the bone. This test was performed because of the patient's neurologic symptoms and suspicion of hydrocephalus.
