Trying to understand my fathers CT scan
My father fell down on his left side on 6th November 2018. As per his description, he didn't lose his consciousness. He remembers feeling his left foot is stuck and he can't pull it forward and then he fell on his left side and had small laceration on left temple ( 2 stitches) and bruised left cheek. He also remembers that his hand failed to support his fall as a result his right, first two knuckles, were bruised and left knee and left shoulder also got bruised. Bruises are recovered and as good as new. This was very first time he ever faced this. Recently, upon a neurologist's advice, he got a CT scan done. During his inspection, he didn't find any abnormality but still prescribed a CT scan. I have attached the result page of the scan. My father is 70 ( around 56-60kg) and he is on hypertension medication for past several years. Since, I am in Bangalore and he is in Lucknow, I couldn't wait to get answers pertaining to the CT scan report. Kindly described me the report in simple term

CT scan is grossly normal. Only mild cerebral atrophy... That is age related
