Caption: This lateral ( from the side ) skull x-ray was obtained after the completion of embolization of a convexity meningioma (benign hypervascular tumor). A large amount of small embolic particles which was mixed with xray dye was injected into the blood vessels supplying the intracranial mass (meningioma). After the embolic particles are injected they are trapped in the capillary bed of the tumor which allows them to be seen on a plain x-ray after embolization. Embolization is a way to decrease the blood flow to the tumor to allow the neurosurgeon an easier time when removing it.
