Fatty Infiltration Of The Liver Ct
Hi i done CT they found fatty infiltration of the liver andthere is a rounded lesion of hyperdensity in the posterior segment the lobe liver 3.6x 3.2?
CT hyperdensity: There is not enough detail to render an opinion on the lesion.The 'hyperdense' descriptor is very nonspecific. It could be anything from nothing to worry about('focal sparing', or an island of normal tissue surrounded by fatty infiltration), to something more serious.Is there more detail in the report? Talk to your doc. Fatty infiltration is benign fat deposition due to multiple possibles cause ...Read more

Yes: I am guessing you've been diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver after having raised liver enzymes and proving not to have hepatitis b or c, autoimmune hepatitis, wilson's (don't miss that one) or hemochromatosis. This sometimes progresses but usually doesn't; if it were my liver, i'd adopt a radical fitness-focused aerobic kind of lifestyle in addition to possible rx & diet. ...Read more
Depends....: Classic definition of fatty infiltration of the liver (ie, hepatosteatosis) is a 10 hounsfield difference of attenuation between liver and spleen on an unenhanced ct. Secondary sequela of cirrhosis can be demonstrated on a ct such as macrolobulated border and nodule formation as well as sequela of portal hypertension. However, fatty liver and cirrhosis can co-exist and a biopsy can differentiate. ...Read more
