In brief: Renal parenchymal dz

Renal parenchymal disease is a phrase usually listed in reports from imaging studies, it is an imaging finding.
If you truly have an imaging abnormality it does imply having chronic kidney disease (ckd). With only the phrase renal parenchymal disease, we can't guess on what stage of ckd a person has or the cause of the damage.
