Choice of modality
- Ultrasonography of steatosis is a good method for screening. Quantification can be done, but it is not as accurate as MRI.
- MRI of liver steatosis is the most accurate method to quantify liver steatosis.
- CT of the liver should not be used to detect or stage liver steatosis. Steatosis on CT scan is displayed as a liver with attenuation lower than usual. CT has high sensitivity for moderate and severe steatosis, but lower for mild steatosis.
