Abstract
Radiographic appearance of the diploe of the scaphocephalic skull was performed using computed tomography assisted by tonal correction of the original CT scans. We found out that the diploe of the analysed scaphocephalic is relatively thick, especially in the posterior aspect of the vault. It appears as highly porous structure, and tightly fills the space between tables of the compact bone. There are radiololucent areas in CT scans, which manifest rarefication of the diploe in the parietal bones. Numerous diploic channels, which communicate among themselves, were detected. The external table of the compact bone is well demarcated in contrast to the internal table of the compact bone, which seems to disappear in certain areas of the vault.
