  • Purpose: The study purpose was to prospectively determine the accuracy of contrast-enhanced CT in diagnosing fatty liver using same-day biopsy as the reference standard. Materials and methods: One hundred seventy-nine potential living liver donors underwent unenhanced and portal-phase contrast-enhanced hepatic CT and subsequent liver biopsy on the same day. Attenuation difference between the liver and the spleen on unenhanced (preL-S) and contrast-enhanced (postL-S) images and blood-subtracted… CONTINUE READING
