Radiographs of the brain
Left internal carotid angiogram, venous phase
The procedure is the same as that of the previous view except that films were exposed as the opaque material passed into the venous side of the cerebral vascular system. (These films have been reproduced through the courtesy of Dr. Earl Miller of the University of California Hospital.)
1 . Superior cerebral vein left (one of a group of anterior veins entering the superior sagittal sinus)
2 . Terminal vein left (branches ramify upon caudate nucleus)
3 . Small anastomotic vein of Labbé
4 . Inferior cerebral vein (lower pointer indicates the middle cerebral vein, which lies along the lateral cerebral fissure and is continuous with the great anastomotic vein)
5 . Inferior cerebral vein (lateral occipital veins)
6 . Superior cerebral veins (from medial surface of left hemisphere)
7 . Superior cerebral veins (from lateral surface of left hemisphere)
8 . Superior sagittal sinus
9 . Great anastomotic vein of Trolard
10 . Internal cerebral vein left
11 . Great cerebral vein of Galen
12 . Basal veins
13 . Straight sinus
14 . Confluence of the sinuses
15 . Transverse sinus left (filling defect between pointers)
16 . Sigmoid part of transverse sinus right
17 . Sigmoid part of transverse sinus left
18 . Internal jugular vein left (filling defect from left sigmoid sinus to upper end of this vein)
