what does "anterior interhemispheric falx calcification" mean?

The falx: is a normal dural reflection at the brain midline. Falx calcification is a common incidental finding, usually of no concern. If it is a calcified mass along the falx, rather than calcification of the falx, it is most likely a benign meningioma.
