Hi, I'am Dr Suresh K Yadav MD (paediatrics), I had gone through your question and understand your concerns,

First of all , giddiness and falling of your son does not seems to be related to CT Scan Findings. It is an incidental finding . If the development of your child is normal , mild dilation of bilateral lateral ventricles can be normal, and is not of much significance . So if every other thing is normal , I do not think it is cause of concern.

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions

Take care.
