Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
CT scans of the brain are good to check for large bleeding in the brain or trauma
but it doesn't see the brain tissue very well
a brain MRI scan would be much better to clarify what this "non specific collection prominence in the CSF space" is
I can't see the images myself
you can try to get the CT scan disk of your brain CT scan
but I suspect it is not a worrisome finding
it would not be related to HSV or herpes type 1 virus.
