Fat in the Dural Sinuses

Fat deposition in the dural sinuses can be an incidental finding, with the most common location being the cavernous sinus, torcular herophili, the straight sinus, inferior sagittal sinus, superior sagittal sinus (seen above), and transverse sinus (in decreasing order of frequency). It has been suggested that these deposits represent normal adipose tissue in the dural sinuses and not lipomas.
