Abstract

The meninges – connective tissue coverings of the brain – are vital structures as they help protect and the health of the brain. Other research has suggested that due to the close relationship to the brain, the meninges – especially the dura mater – might be affected by diseases of the brain and show changes in thickness and density. This project evaluates the normal variation in the density of the dura mater from thirty-three individual CT scans obtained from Saint Mary’s Hospital System.
