Two supratentorial meningiomas: are they different?

A 65-year-old woman comes for headache management. Few years ago, she was diagnosed with a ‘single benign tumour of the anterior part of the brain’. A new contrast CT brain scan was done (figures 1 and 2); as she was claustrophobic, brain MRI was not ordered. The mass they have referred to was most likely a falcine meningioma. In addition, there is an oval hyperdense mass at the right temporal area, which is diffusely and homogenously calcified and seems to sit on the pertrous temporal bone, a finding that may well refer to another meningioma.
