Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The CT scan is normal - too good for her age!
Parkinson is a clinical diagnosis / CT is done to exclude other common causes.
Follow up with your neurologist / dose and timings may need individual titration.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
