Skull radiography

Skull radiography is the radiological investigation of the skull vault and associated bony structures. Seldom requested in modern medicine, plain radiography of the skull is often a last resort in trauma imaging in the absence of a CT. However, it is still utilized in the setting of skeletal surveys. Occasionally it might be used as a magnified technique to evaluate palpable bony lesions of the scalp

It is also used in some departments to exclude the presence of metallic foreign bodies that might contraindicate MRI.
