    Does this sentence need commas?

    A prior MRI of the brain done in June of 2005 was abnormal with evidence of right-sided hippocampal sclerosis.


    I am a medical transcriptionist. This is the way the doctor dictates this.

    I was thinking a comma after brain and after 2005. Is it needed in those two places or not?

    No commas are needed since the phrase is quite short.
