Convolutional markings

Dr Craig Hacking and A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

Convolutional markings are normal impressions of the gyri on the inner table of the skull, seen predominantly posteriorly. If they are pronounced and over the more anterior parts of the skull, then this is referred to as a copper beaten skull and suggests the presence of raised intracranial pressure.
