Posterior arteries: Perhaps the reference was to the Posterior Communicating Arteries of the base of the brain called the circle of Willis.

CT scan may not show vasculature clearly and this finding may not be clinically relevant ...Read more

You're right to be concerned as such headaches, even if not "stroke", can disable. ...Read more
