Computed tomography of fatty infiltration of the liver



Computed tomography of fatty infiltration of the liver



South African Medical Journal 64(8): 279-281



Fatty infiltration of the liver can be identified by means of and may have a spectacular appearance on computed tomography (CT). Fifteen cases are described and the clinical associations are discussed. CT may be useful as a primary technique for the diagnosis of a fatty liver when performance of a biopsy is contraindicated.
