Abstract

Jugular venography done to evaluate abnormalities at the base of the skull demonstrated three distinctly different patterns depending on whether there is occlusion, invasion, or growth within the internal jugular vein. Improper technique results in a lack of intracranial dural sinus filling which may masquerade as venous occlusion. This problem is avoided by adequate neck compression along with proper volume and rate of delivery of contrast. Radiographically, an abnormal jugular vein at the base of the skull will show a concave defect in true occlusion, constriction or invasion of the vein by tumor, or tumor growth within the vein.
