Sonographic hepatic-renal ratio as indicator of hepatic steatosis: comparison with (1)H magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic performance of ultrasound (US) in the quantitative assessment of steatosis by comparison with proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) as a reference standard. Three liver echo-intensity indices were derived: US hepatic mean gray level, hepatic-renal echo-intensity ratio (H/R), and hepatic… (More)
