    Skull radiograph demonstrating the characteristic findings of scaphocephaly. The widest diameter of the skull is in the temporal region, with the skull narrowing as one goes superiorly. There is osseous sclerosis with the fusion of sagittal suture posteriorly, and this would be palpable as a bony ridge clinically.
