Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Hi. What do you mean by an ultrasound result stating that the liver exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and a smooth external outline? Thank you

Hi. What do you mean by an ultrasound result stating that the liver exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and a smooth external outline? Thank you

Benign liver disease: This description of echotexture describes the relative level of echogenicity (ability to bounce an echo wave) of the liver. Assessment of liver echogenicity is of value for assessing moderate to pronounced fatty infiltration but is not reliable for diagnosing fibrosis. Smooth external outline means there is not cirrhosis. See your MD for additional testing and treatment for fatty liver ...Read more

What do these ultrasound results mean? Hepatic contour smooth. Focal right 1.1 CM echogenicity is noted. Hepatopetal main portal venous flow is noted.

Nothing bad: Smooth hepatic contour means no signs of cirrhosis or mass. Echogenicity is sometimes from a vessel on end or a small hemangioma. These are not cancerous or anything to worry about. Hepatopedal means the blood flow to the liver is in the correct direction. In some diseases the flow is reversed or there is loss of flow so this is why they noted the flow direction. ...Read more
