Neurol Clin



Headache Attributed to Disorder of the Cranium and Base of the Skull.


Agarwal A, Kanekar S
Neurol Clin. 2022 Aug; 40(3):563-589.
PMID: 35871785.


The article describes the approach to imaging that clinicians should adopt in cases of headaches suspected to be secondary to cranial vault or skull-base disorder. As a rule, computed tomography (CT) is superior to MRI for most of the osseous lesions, and lesions of the middle and external ear. MRI provides a complimentary role to CT and is the modality of choice in a few conditions such as extraosseous neoplasms of the skull base.
