I had a MRI done and results came back stating there was a hyperintense T2 lesion in the posterior right hepatic lobe measuring 11x16mm. Also there is a intermediate lesion within the middle pole of the right kidney. What could both mean possibly?

Hello Chele1215,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us to interpret the MRI findings, but that is beyond our capabilities. If you have not already scheduled a follow up appointment with the physician who ordered the MRI, please do so today.

Your physician knows you and can best explain what these finding indicate.

I can only provide general information.

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of liver lesions is of pivotal importance in clinical practice. In abdominal MR imaging, T1- and T2-weighted sequences remain a basic requirement for lesion characterization.

The size of the hepatic lesion is small. The equivalent of 11 x 16 mm is 0.433 x 0.629 inches.

A lesion was detected in your right kidney and may need more evaluation to determine what it is. That is why it is so important to speak with your physician.

Please keep us updated,
