Spanish term or phrase: teca craneal
From Spanish from Spain to British English, related to

"estimulación transcraneal mediante campo magnético estático del sistema nervioso de manera invasiva":

"al menos un imán para aplicar un campo magnético estático sobre el sistema nervioso central, donde el imán está ubicado en una posición seleccionada entre: subcutánea; en un hueso de la teca craneal; en la cara interna de un hueso de la teca craneal; e intracerebral"
(Spanish patent ES 2398179 A1) (the translation in Google patents for this phrase is "cranial teak bone", but that just looks literal and I have no confidence in it at all as I assume it is a machine translation).

Elsewhere (https://es.slideshare.net/eliaslarafarfan/crneo-41440218, slide 12) I find "teca interna" and "teca externa" as "compact bone" - is that it?

skull


Explanation:
While there may be some contexts where another term may be used, "skull" is the term I would use in nearly all cases of "teca craneal".

cranial box


Explanation:
Teca aquí hace alusión al envoltorio o caja; la "caja" craneal. Tal y como sugiere Andrew en respuesta previa, se alude así al cráneo (skull). Aunque cabe traducir con el "clásico" equivalente en inglés cranial box.

So as not to feel too obstinately gazed upon by the hollowed out orbits of the human skull before him, the scientist of bodies — the anatomist — always prefers, as is well known, to speak of the cranial box.

The thecal sac or dural sac is the membranous sheath (theca) or tube of dura mater that surrounds the spinal cord and the cauda equina. The thecal sac contains the cerebrospinal fluid which provides nutrients and buoyancy to the spinal cord.

Dural sac: Anatomy
Definition
The dura mater is the outermost of the spinal meninges. It is a thick, fibroelastic membrane composed of collagen and elastin fibers that is a continuation of the cranial dura. At its cephalad origin, it fuses with the periosteum of the skull at the foramen magnum, and it continues caudally in a circumferential manner to its termination at approximately S2 in the adult. Here it fuses with the filum terminale and eventually the periosteum of the coccyx. Laterally, it follows the spinal nerve roots out to about the level of the intervertebral foramina, where it blends with the epineurium of the roots. The dural sac and closely adherent arachnoid mater on its inner surface, are a barrier to drug migration into and out of the cerebrospinal fluid during epidural anesthesia. The termination of the sac well below the conus medullaris (classically found at L1 in the adult) also provides a degree of safety when performing spinal anesthesia, offering the anesthesiologist multiple spinal levels for intrathecal drug administration with low risk for direct spinal cord trauma.
