Brief Answer:
Hi, it could be related to hypertension.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there, thanks for asking. This could be seen in people who have elevated blood pressure. It could also be seen with advanced age. If you have high blood pressure it should be regulated tightly. If you do not know about it, you should check with your doctor about it. Gait imbalance that you mentioned can happen in people who have high blood pressure. It could also have other reasons and so it is better to check with your doctor about it. I wish you a good health.

Brief Answer:
Hi, it could be normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there, thanks for asking. These changes are often very non-specific. For example, many people who have migraine may show some density changes in the periventricular area as you mentioned. It could also be a normal variation at that age. By the way, do you have any kind of headaches? thanks.
