Done CT scan of brain. Need interpretation

Hello Doctors, I m just worried the status of my friend thats why I do this. She just finished taking the CT scan of her brain but the Doctors that will explain the result will be available on Monday. I can`t wait Monday to come for I am really worried to her status. PLease help us, below is the interpretation of the CT scan she takes: HEAD/BRAIN (PLAIN AND CONTRAST) There are no hypodense or hyperdense parenchymal lesions seen. There is no evidence of hemorrhage. There are no enhancing parenchymal lesions or vascular malformations. The cortical sulci and gyri are preserved. The ventricles and basal cisterns are within normal limits. The midline structures are not displaced. There are no intra or extra axial fluid collections seen. There are no abnormal calcifications noted. The orbital structures are unremarkable. The mastoid air cells and the visualized paranasal sinuses are well aerated. IMPRESSION: Unremarkable contrast-enhanced CT scan of the brain. Thanks! Sincerely yours, Rheza
