In brief: Ultrasound

It means that you have a fatty liver with areas of focal sparing.
This may be related to a normal variant or may be related to diet. You should ask your doctor to correlate with liver function tests.

In brief: Fatty liver

Most likely this is fatty infiltration of the liver. It is non-cancerous but is associated with obesity, alcohol use, and diabetes.
It can also be seen as a result of other causes of liver disease.
