Previously, ultrasonography and serum aminotransferases have been used to estimate prevalence of the disorder. A lack of concordance has been noted between these two diagnostic tests. To better understand the spectrum of fatty liver in obese children and the relationship of serum aminotransferases to the severity of steatosis, hepatic MRI was used to quantitate fat content.
