dc.description.abstract Intracranial physiological calcifications are unaccompanied by any evidence of disease and have no demonstrable pathological cause. They are often due to calcium and sometimes iron deposition in the blood vessels of different structures of the brain. This study was done to assess the incidence of intracranial physiological calcifications and the relation with age as well as the calcium level in the blood. The study was done in Khartoum state in: Khartoum Teaching Hospital and Elniline Medical Center, 50 patients were included in the study; 27 males and 23 females with age range between14-74. The main findings of this study were that: Intracranial calcifications are more common in males than females, the pineal gland has highest incidence in the sample data by 78%, the pineal gland scored high degree of calcification by mean of CT number value 192.7HU. en_US
