From what you have decribed,the CT scan seems to be very normal,you dont have to worry about the small mm sized calcification.It may be a normal change in elderly due to neurodegenerative changes/mild amyloid deposition,it can occur in neurocysticercosis or toxoplasma infection as well(but not the case here).Just ignore it.It wont have a long term consequence aswell.
