Conventional vertebral arteriography in adults generally results in good opacification of the lateral sinuses and at times of the jugular venous system as well. In the case of children, direct sinusography is necessary (Figs. 6–8). Quite often retrograde jugulography is also utilized to achieve a visualization of the venous network of the posterior fossa in its entirety. In any case, the radiologic study of the lateral venous sinuses, when needed, is easy and the difficulties brought up by Kinal fall away with retrograde jugulography . From a practical point of view the following chapters can be taken into consideration:
Extracerebral tumors touching the sinuses:
Meningiomas of the tentorium
Tumors of the jugular glomus
