I would like help with my MRI results please.

Pancreas: No significant abnormalities identified. The pancreatic head and uncinate process are fairly homogeneous in overall signal. The second and third portions of duodenum are collapsed and have no fluid within them on T2 axial imaging. No cyst or pseudocyst is seen. No stranding about the pancreas is identified. The pancreatic duct is identified and not dilated.

Kidneys: No obstruction. Ill-defined 9.7 mm mildly hyperintense focus is seen about the lower lateral pole of the left kidney on coronal T2 image 16. This could be a complex cyst. In the lower pole of the left kidney on coronal T2 image 18 is a hypodense focus measuring 5.8 mm. This may be a scar or small fatty cleft. Less likely this is a small angiomyolipoma.

Pancreas: within normal limits, noting slightly limited evaluation as some portions partially collapsed.
Kidneys: possible complex cyst, which may or may not need to be followed depending on how complex.
The other thing (tiny cortical indentation/fatty cleft vs. benign mass) is not worrisome.

I would not focus so much on the FINDINGS; just skip to IMPRESSION section at end of report.
Just to clarify, the part that was limited is the duodenum (small bowel), not pancreas.
