Abstract
Background: Fatty Liver Disease (FLD) also known as Hepatic Steatosis (HS) is identified by the abnormal build-up of lipids particularly triglyceride in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes. The present study was conducted to assess fatty liver disease using USG and CT scan.
Materials & Methods: 130 cases of fatty liver disease in both genders were thoroughly examined and underwent Ultrasonography (USG) and CT Scan.
Results: Out of 130 patients, males were 78 and females were 52. FLD grading was grade I in 76, grade II in 34 and grade III in 20 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Liver CTHFN Mean HU in grade I was 42.6 HU, in grade II was 25.2 HU and in grade III was 3.8 HU. The difference was significant (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Both CT scan and USG findings were helpful in diagnosis of cases of fatty liver disease.
