This section is through the centrum semiovale (5) and dorsal to the cerebral ventricles. The superior sagittal sinus is seen anteriorly (18) and posteriorly (unlabeled) within the falx cerebri. Within the frontal lobe are seen the superior (17) and middle (2) frontal gyri and the precentral gyrus ( 14). The superior and middle frontal gyri are separated by the superior frontal sulcus (1, 16). The precentral gyrus (6, 14) is delineated by the precentral (4, 15) and the central (rolandic) (13) sulci. The postcentral gyrus (7, 12) is caudal to the central (rolandic) sulcus (13). The postcentral sulcus (11) separates the postcentral gyrus (7, 12) from the inferior parietal lobule (10). On the medial surface of the parietal lobe is the precuneus gyrus (9). The parietooccipital sulcus (8) separates the parietal from the occipital lobe. A diploic vein (3) is seen within the calvarium.
