Abstract

Three cases of ossification of the falx cerebri initially mistaken for vascular lesions based on their magnetic resonance (MR) appearance are reviewed. The MR imaging and computerized tomography characteristics of mineralization of the falx cerebri and their differentiation from interhemispheric vascular lesions are discussed.
