T2 Hyperintense Lesion Liver
I have multiple sclerosis and during a routine MRI of my t-spine the MRI happened to pick up a t2 hyperintense lesion on my liver. ?
MS & liver spot: It is common for tests to pick up things we did not know about, and sometimes this helps us. In this case, the significance of this is not clear. MS does not cause changes like this on the liver. It is likely a liver specialist would think this is benign, but we should leave it to them to decide. ...Read moreGet help now ›

It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
What could this be (liver)? Two t2 hyperintense lesions. Questionable minimal peripheral enhancement, but lesions do not completely fill with contrast
Hemangiomas vs. cyst: Bunny: t2 lesions in the liver are typically not cancerous and represent usually hemangiomas or liver cysts. When they say did not completely fill with contrast, that hints to me that they are thinking hemangiomas. A sonogram is a good follow up test for these or a ct scan to confirm. The ct should be with contrast and with delayed images. A sonogram will spare you the radiation of a ct scan. ...Read moreGet help now ›

What are non-enhancing t2 hyperintense lesions and chorid plexus xanthogranulomas? Should I be concerned?
Probably not: These findings are almost always of no concern. However, without reviewing the study, it is hard to know what the radiologist who read the study is referring specifically to. I need more information. FYI, the scan on the right has tiny T2 hyperintensities of no significance.

Had a stg 1A/grade1 ovary mucus tumor 2013. Now have a 2.8x1.9cm cavernous hemangioma in 7th liver segment. T2 hyperintense/well margined. thoughts?
Unrelated conditions: Ovarian cancer in general has no association with cavernous hemangiomas of liver regardless of the stage of ovarian disease. One has to periodically check pelvis for possible recurrence of ovarian disease even if unlikely. Most hepatic hemangiomas are small and asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis, and they are likely to remain that way. In addition, malignant transformation has not been seen ...Read moreGet help now ›
How serious is: exophytic T2 hyperintense renal lesion, 6cm x 7cm x 5cm? Kidney is 12cm length. US indicates simple cyst. Some discomfort in abdomen.
Not serious: The kidney cyst is a round pouch of smooth, thin-walled tissue usually filled with fluid. Simple cysts are the most common type. They are not the same thing as polycystic kidney disease, which is progressive and can lead to kidney failure The size of these cysts may also increase with age. They usually do not cause symptoms. If found during an ultrasound or CAT scan they are frequently watched. If necessary they can be aspirated and the space filled with a solution that contains alcohol ...Read moreGet help now ›
Mri said 8mm hyporintense lesion in the inferior aspect of the spleen is noted. Impression did not list this but it did say small t2 hyperintense splenic lesion may represent cyst or hemaginoma worry?
No: If the MRI wasn't ordered to stage a malignancy that you all ready have. The radiologist favors something benign. Most lesions that are distinct on radiology in the spleen are usually benign hemangiomas. The spleen is a common place for hemangiomas. There are always exceptions, so it is a good idea to follow it up over time with several more scans to make sure it doesn't grow or change. ...Read moreGet help now ›
