  Hi...in reference to inter cranial flow voids I found this info -Flow voids are normal. The method of excitement used to make single slice images of your brain gives the energy pulses twice at a given time frame. The moving blood leaves the area between pulses. The stationary tissue gives back energy that we call a echo and use this to make the picture. The blood does not give off this echo leaving dark signal voids in the picture. So in arteries and veins moving blood is good, if we get signal from the vessel on the scan that we don't expect, we start to look for problems like clots or aneurysm.

And well aerated paranasal sinuses...this is discussing ur paranasal sinuses...and well aerated means well oxygenated.....so it is good.
