Developmental changes in normal cranial measurements by computed tomography



Developmental changes in normal cranial measurements by computed tomography



Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology 21(4): 425-432



Computed tomography (CT) scans were examined for 89 selected patients in an attempt to establish normal values at various ages for longitudinal and transverse diameters of the brain, the greatest distance between the right and left sides of the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle, the width of the lateral ventricles in the region of the caudate nuclei and the greatest width of the 3rd ventricle. The patients' ages ranged from < 1 yr to over 40 yr. These measurements and their ratios to one another are reported. The cerebral longitudinal fissure, Sylvian fissure and subarachnoid space were evident to some degree below the age of 2 yr, especially below the age of 1 yr, and again above the age of 40 yr. The cortical sulcus occasionally had a width of < 1.9 mm below the age of 1 yr and above the age of 40 yr.
