what is homogenous liver?

No bumps / lumps: Or other odd-looking lesions. If this is the result of your imaging study, it's probably good news. On imaging, liver should have no obvious texture, any more than you can see from a distance when it's calf liver on a plate for dinner.

Normal: This is a radiological term meaning that it looks similar throughout the whole substance, without any unusual spots or areas. Pat yourself on the back and keep doing what you are. If there are other problem at least the liver is probably not the cause.
