It means that you have a fatty liver with areas of focal sparing. This may be related to a normal variant or may be related to diet. You should ask your doctor to correlate with liver function tests.

Most likely this is fatty infiltration of the liver. It is non-cancerous but is associated with obesity, alcohol use, and diabetes. It can also be seen as a result of other causes of liver disease.
