Hepatic steatosis detected by ultrasonography as a predictor of insulin resistance in obese patients
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-10-31)
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is closely related to the Metabolic syndrome. A significant feature of NAFLD is the presence of hepatic steatosis, which can be assessed by ultrasonography, by measuring the hepatorenal index (HRI), a comparison of liver and kidney acoustic echo densities.
