Computed tomography number of the fatty liver



Computed tomography number of the fatty liver



Nippon Acta Radiologica 41(6): 489-496



The CT (computed tomography) number and CT images of the 8 [human] cases with fatty liver, are discussed. Five of these cases showed density reversals of the liver and vessels. In these cases, the diagnoses of fatty liver was easy. In other cases, the diagnoses were possible only by comparison of the CT number of the liver and spleen because the CT number of the normal liver was higher than those of the spleen. The correlation between the CT number and specific gravities of blood, normal saline, distilled water, mayonnaise, eatable oil, ethyl alcohol and lard was examined. A linear relationship between the CT number and these specific gravities was observed. The diagnosis of fatty liver and the degree of fatty infiltration can apparently be guessed by the CT number of the liver and spleen.
