Nothing w/o symptoms: The impression of a CT scan means nothing unless there are symptoms or signs that warrant the scan to begin with. Why was the CT scan ordered? What symptoms did you have? The impression says that there are less dense spots in the left front part of the brain, but no mass, no tumor. The cause (& significance) of the spots is unknown. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test or use HealthTap Prime.
