Need to see pictures: T2 hyperintensity means fluid. But the semicircular canals have Endolymph fluid normally. Whether there is excess fluid (hydrops) that is causing symptoms (Meniere's) cannot be established with certainty by MRI. A dilated canal could indicate hydrops but that would depend on how the pictures look. Obtain a copy of MRI pictures & report to upload on HealthTap Prime; you'll get better answers there.
