Abstract

BACKGROUND: The natural history of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) includes the passage through steatosis. GOAL: To retrospectively evaluate the usefulness of sonographic parameters compared to histological diagnosis when differentiating steatosis from NASH. STUDY: This retrospective study reviewed records of patients with steatosis from databases of our Departments, selecting only those who had been diagnosed by sonography and liver biopsy [64 males (63.82%); 30 females (36.18%)]. RESULTS: Attenuation of the echo amplitude (P
