Actually, I was reviewing the old posts to see if you gave details of the previous ultrasound for comparison.
This diffuse change in the liver on ultrasound is consistent with fatty infiltration of the liver. In the previous posts, you only mentioned that the evaluation showed fatty infiltration of the liver on ultrasound. It is difficult to say from the description whether this is unchanged, better, or worse than before.
While your dcotor can compare the descriptions on the reports of the two ultrasounds, it would be better if the Radiologist could look at the images and comment upon whether it looks better.
I was in the process of leaving the computer when this question was posted, so I am about to step away from the computer, but I will be back later today if you have any follow-up questions.
It only means that there is more echoes within the liver. They used similar terminology in the old ultrasound. Since the two ultrasounds were done at different facilities, the only way to determine whether it looks better on this ultrasound would be to request the images from the first ultrasound and take them to the current facility to be able to compare.
Yes. As the expert told you on your first question, the findings on ultrasound with a fatty liver are non-specific, so it is appropriate to perform additional evaluation. Since there was further evaluation done at that time to exclude other possible causes, it does not need to be repeated every time that an ultrasound is done to monitor the disease.
I just said that the evaluation does not need to be repeated.
You are welcome.
