Thanks for the query.
Your mother is having pain abdomen for past 3 months and ultrasound abdomen shows increased diffuse echogenecity in liver and a small  stone in left kidney.
The doctor has diagnosed it as chronic diverticulitis.
 Echogenicity is the ability to create an echo, i.e. return a signal in ultrasound examinations. Increased echogenicity of the liver usually means that there is fatty infiltration in parts of the liver. In certain causes a focal area of increased echogenicity would indicate a discrete mass. However, in your case, a diffuse increase would mean a fatty liver.

Your doctor is right in ordering a CECT abdomen,as it would help in diagnosing the exact cause of stomach pain which will pave the way for the proper treatment.
You are most welcome to ask for any follow up query.
Best of luck
