US liver: Ultrasound (us) of the liver will allow the doctor to visualize the anatomy of the liver i.e. Size, contour and organ density. Us of the liver can rule out mass lesions (benign and malignant) and assess for fatty change. Doppler will allow visualization of the blood flow to the liver. Good luck.
