Is liver showing diffuse increased parenchymal echogenicity with 2 small calcific foci in right lobe measuring about 2.5mm each is something to worry?

Concern: This question is best answered by a gastroenterologist or hepatologist(liver specialist). I would be concerned about chronic liver inflammation or fatty infiltration. I assume that you have been instructed to abstain from alcohol. A liver biopsy may be indicated for diagnosis.
