"Mild cerebral volume loss with prominence of the sulci" means that there is loss of brain volume in the cerebrum. This happens to everyone with age, but is more prominent with people who have Alzheimers and other neurodegenerative disorders. It isn't a diagnosis of anything, just a statement of what was seen. There are convolutions in brain tissue and the sulci are the "troughs" between them. When there is volume loss, the troughs widen, which is an expected finding.

You need to see a neurologist to determine what is going on.

Please let me know if you have additional questions about this.
