Subjective: Ultrasound is very user dependent for results. Gross abnormalites such as enlargement or mass could be ruled out. Cellular dysfurnctions are more difficult. The pattern in the liver such as increased echogenicity may mean fatty infiltration which can cause enzyme elevation. Sometimes cellular changes too minimal for detection. Enzyme elevations can be related to medications, inflammatino, etc.
