Radiologist 's  Response
welcome to globus pallidus is a part of the brain that helps regulate movement. Calcification of it can be a sign of a neuropsychiatric disorder (idiopathic basal ganglia calification) that may present it self as having difficulty performing movements and some psychiatric problems such as difficulty concentrating and/or memory and personality changes.
However in age 40 and elderly it is a sign of age related change.Hope she doesnt suffer any symptoms.Take care.
