Increased /coarse hepatic parenchymal echotexture (liver parenchymal disease ) with prominent portal vein and splenomegaly? Wat it means
Severe damage: When damage to the liver occurs for a long time, meaning years, the liver becomes scarred and the veins that bring blood to the liver become distended because of resistance inside the liver. This increased pressure causes the spleen to take more blood and become enlarged. This is called cirrhosis of the liver and can be due to any number of things including alcohol and viral hepatitis. ...Read more
Sounds right...: Interpretation on sono report. Fatty infiltration of the liver commonly occurs with overweight/obesity, alcohol intake, some meds. May or may not cause increased size of liver, discomfort, abnormal blood tests. May lead to chronic inflammation and liver disease in some.

Several things: Heterogenous pattern of liver on ultrasound can mean liver disease such as cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis.Metatatic disease, lymphoproliferative diseasse, and fatth liver. Fatty liver usually has increased echogencity. Left lobe can enlarge to compensate for loss of liver function as long this as normal appearance to its echogenicity. Blood tests, physical examination, history, biopsy help. ...Read more
Ultrasound: The term describes the sonographic characteristics of the kidney tissue. When the cortical echogenicity is increased the kidney looks brighter. This is a finding usually associated with various chronic renal parenchymal disease. When decreased can represent swelling from acute infection or renal vein obstruction. ...Read more
Abdominal ultrasound:what does the following mean?"the liver shows mildly increased echogenicity compatible with fatty infiltration.No focal hepatic
Fatty infiltration : Is also called fatty liver. This is a condition known as steatosis in medical terms. Steatosis can lead to liver damage which can result in cirrhosis. Steatosis is associated with metabolic syndrome which is a collection of problems including diabetes and high blood pressure.

Fatty liver.: Steatosis of liver is fatty infiltration of the liver. Liver cells become infiltrated with fat, fatty acid chains (triglycerides). Most common causes: alcoholism and obesity.

Liver chems abnormal. ...Read more

Steatosis just means fat has accumulated in the liver, without associated inflammation. A chronically inflammed liver is at risk for cirrhosis and liver cancer, so it is important to reverse steatohepatitis when possible (ie.Weight loss, correct diabetes & high cholesterol, stop alcohol). ...Read more
