Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Chronic Epididymitis on Rt side confirmed on ultrasound scanning and Colour Doppler study.
Please take antibiotics like Doxycycline along with some anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac twice daily. Get prescription of the drugs from your family Physician.There is no need to do MRI.

You need to take course of antibiotics.Cause of epididymitis is infection.You don't need MRI of testis, sonography is good enough.

You need broad spectrum antibiotics and then repeat sonography.

Hope this helps.Regards.
