Brief Answer:
Most likely normal structures however please send a picture for confirming

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. There are few areas which can appear to be small white nodules in the CT scan brain and which is normal calcification.

2. These nodules are usually symmetrical and one of the areas is the choroid plexus in the lateral ventricles. In some people basal ganglia calcification is also found and is normal.

3. It is most likely that your calcified nodules are normal structures. However please send a picture so that it can be confirmed.

Hope your query is answered.
Please do write back if you have any doubts.
