Hello and thank you for your query!

Your CT is showing moderate loss of brain volume in the frontal lobes. This can be seen as an isolated finding, in aging, or in certain types of dementia (frontal or Pick dementia).
Therefore, I think this particular imaging finding should be carefully correlated with your complaints, preferably by a Neurologist. If everything is fine with your superior brain function, then you should not worry about it.

I wish you good health!
