Portuguese term or phrase: foice cerebral
Alguém sabe a tradução para o ingleês de "foice cerebral"? Este é um relatório de tomografia computadorizada que diz apenas: "foram observadas calcificações na foice horizontal anteriormente". Desculpem-me por não poder fornecer mais contexto, mas essa é a única referência a essa expressão no texto.

Grata!
