1 doctor agrees

In brief: Fatty liver likely

Lots of substances may "infiltrate" the liver & increase echogenicity (sound waves bounce off liver better).
Fatty liver is most common--due to diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, drinking too much alcohol. Lose weight & stop alcohol consumption if these are your problems. Fatty liver with abnormal liver functions (blood tests) is however considerably more concerning than just an echogenic liver.
