Expert Answer
The right kidney is situated a little below and not above the left kidney.
The right kidney sits just below the diaphragm and posterior to the liver, the left kidney is below the diaphragm and posterior to the spleen. Resting on top of each kidney is an adrenal gland. The asymmetry within the abdominal cavity caused by the liver typically results in the right kidney being slightly lower than the left, and left kidney being located slightly more medial than the right.
