Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
First of all, let me reassure you that there is nothing to worry about your CT and MRI brain scan findings. MRI is a much more advanced scan that CT. So, the findings of MRI are final. In this case, MRI is normal, which means your brain is normal.
Just as your doctors have told, mild atrophy of brain on CT scan has no clinical significance. It is just a finding for the radiologist who reports it.
