ABSTRACT: Intracranial calcifications seen on computed tomography (CT) are the most common finding in the everyday practice of radiology, because non contrast-enhanced CT of the head is the preferred imaging modality worldwide for the initial evaluation of patients with acute or chronic neurological problem.Computed tomography (CT) is the most sensitive means of detection of these calcifications. The aim of this study was the assessment of intracranial physiological and pathological calcifications as well as intracranial space occupying lesions which are generally used to identify any lesion, whether vascular or neoplastic or inflammatory in origin which increases the volume of intracranial contents and leads to a rise in the intracranial pressure . AIMS & OBJECTIVES: 1. To study the computed tomographic (CT) findings of various physiological and pathological intracranial calcification. 2.To distinguish between the physiological from the pathological intracranial calcification. 3. To determine the role of computed tomography in evaluation of space occupying lesions of the brain
