Large round peripherally dense (? calcified) opacity projected in the centre of the skull above the orbits.
The round opacity over the centre of the skull was not apparent on any other view (not provided). The opacity was confirmed by the radiographer as the patient's pony tail and with the patient's hair let down, a repeat X-ray showed resolution of the opacity.
If not due to artefact, the DDx would be of a calcified meningioma.
