Scalp‑cortex distance

Definition: The scalp‑cortex distance refers to the distance between the cortex and the skin surface. The scalp-cortex distance on adults is about 15 mm. This distance can be influenced by various factors, including age, sex, and specific location on the scalp. For example, in children, this distance is typically smaller than in adults. Within an individual, the scalp-cortex distance may be greater in areas with larger volumes of cerebrospinal fluid or other intervening tissues.Definition: The scalp‑cortex distance refers to the distance between the cortex and the skin surface.
