Fat in dural sinuses
Fat in dural sinuses is usually an incidental finding and generally tends to occur in the regions of torcula and superior sagittal sinus. They are thought to represent normal adipose tissue in the sinus wall.
In some situations they may mimic pneumocephalus on CT if not viewed on the correct window setting.
