A 74-year-old male asked:
is it still worthwhile to have an mri--even without gadolinium contrast--to determine if my kidney mass is a hemorrhagic cyst vs. a neoplasm?

Kidney mass: I believe that an MRI can make that distinction, but this question is best answered by the radiologist. Your attending physician can confer with the radiologist and get advice about what imaging test is best for further evaluation of the mass.
