Figure 2. Unenhanced CT brain and contrast-enhanced CT venography. (A) Axial and (B) midline MIP sagittal images from unenhanced CT show hyperdense superior sagittal sinus (CT density of about 80 Hounsfield units), straight sinus and bilateral frontal parasagittal cortical veins concerning for thrombosis. (C) Axial and (D) midline sagittal CT venography images confirm filling defects in the cerebral dural venous sinuses and cortical veins indicative of thrombosis. Thrombosis extended into the transverse and sigmoid sinuses and left internal jugular vein (not shown).
