I got an abdominal ultrasound and my results say "liver: increased in echogenicity" and "echogenic liver" what does that mean?

This is seen with increased fat content of the liver. Fatty livers are most commonly seen in patients ingesting too much fat in their diets or the result of excessive alcohol intake.
