Whenever there's doubt about the nature of a lesion in the liver, biopsy is a pretty good way of sorting it out. Liver biopsy is a common procedure and one that can be done with little pain and little risk. It sounds like, in your case, the best modality for doing a biopsy (if it's necessary) would be ultrasound guidance.
That said, it's certainly better if one can make a diagnosis on the basis of imaging studies. It sounds like your doctor is doing his or her best to make that happen. There are a lot of things that can look funny in the liver and yet be benign. The fact that the larger lesion isn't showing up on ct is a good sign, especially if you had what's called a multiphase study. Multiphase studies are very sensitive for subtle abnormalities. If the MRI also shows nothing there, then you probably don't need anything more. ...Read more

If you continue to have spotting, then periodic (annual or 2x/yr) sono's may be helpful. If it bothers u (spotting) then u could look into tx's (an ablation, or other procedure). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doppler signals: You are referring to color doppler. The red signals are coming from blood moving towards the ultrasound machine probe and the blue is flowing away from the probe.
