What's a borderline hepatomegaly with fatty infiltration of the liver?

A radiology finding: Usually something noted or commented upon by a radiologist on ultrasound or ct scan. An enlarged liver with excess fatty cells can be from obesity, poor diabetes management, or other medical or medication induced liver changes. Rarely can progress to marked liver damage.
