Quantifying liver fat with ultrasound


Current standards for diagnosing and measuring non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) – liver biopsy and MRI – are impractical for various reasons. The emerging technique of ultrasound attenuation imaging could be helpful in screening for NAFLD. A leading physician explains how.

Did you know ?


Linked strongly with obesity, it is estimated that
non-alcoholic fatty liver disease affects as many as one billion individuals worldwide. Learn more about liver fat quantification (LFQ) in this Philips white paper. 

Now that there is a quantitative way of measuring liver fat, it will make it a lot easier for us to let the referring physician determine where the patient is quantitatively on the NAFLD spectrum.”
