Would a CT scan show if sjogren's syndrome is affecting my brain?

In brief: No

Sjogren's syndrome can be diagnosed by antibody testing and minor salivary gland biopsy.
A ct scan will not show sjogren's syndrome. It can have a lot of systemic symptoms in some people, but generally not on the brain itself.

Multiple sclerosis like plaques can be seen, but are not diagnostic!

In brief: MRI is better

It is highly unlikely that your brain is involved with sjogren's.
An MRI would be a better test.
