Increased /coarse hepatic parenchymal echotexture (liver parenchymal disease ) with prominent portal vein and splenomegaly? Wat it means

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.

Coarse echotexture of liver parenchymal.Portal vein/spleen/pencreas normal.No focal lesion seen.Pv10mm.Cbd 4.6mm.Kidnys normal.No postvoid residue?

Coarse echotexture of liver parenchymal.Portal vein/spleen/pencreas normal.No focal lesion seen.Pv10mm.Cbd 4.6mm.Kidnys normal.No postvoid residue?

Need more info: Coarse texture on ultrasound can be from several reasons, fibrosis or cirrhosis of the liver, or inflammation or infiltration of the liver, and in some patients may be age related. It would be useful to know if the liver function tests are normal, if there is a history of liver disease including hepatitis, alcohol use or fatty liver changes. The ultrasound otherwise is not concerning. ...Read more

LIVER ENLARGED & ECHOGENIC CONSISTENT WITH NONSPECIFIC HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL DISEASE SUCH AS STEATOSIS. NO FOCAL MASS IS SEEN.Spleen size 16cm??

See doctor: The size of the spleen is of note. This enlarges for many reasons. The liver also enlarged is of concern as well. There should be a coordinated laboratory values to help make sense of imaging results. Not a good idea to speculate on cause without more data. Speak to your doctor for more data ...Read more
