An abundance of fat stored within the liver, or steatosis, is the beginning of a broad hepatological spectrum, usually referred to as fatty liver disease (FLD). For studies on FLD, quantitative hepatic fat ultrasonography would be an appealing study modality. Objective of this study was to develop a technique for quantifying hepatic fat content by ultrasonography and validate this using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H MRS) as gold standard. Eighteen white volunteers (BMI range 21.0… CONTINUE READING
