Thank you for posting your query.

The white spot in the image is cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and is present XXXXXXX to the skull, overlying the brain (over cerebellum-the small brain at the back).

It is a normal finding and there is no need to worry about it.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
