Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Fatty liver can be diagnosed by Ultrasound, CT, MRI. Blood tests will support the diagnosis if cholesterol and lipids also high.

welcome to
Fatty liver is actually a diagnosis made on microscopic examination of a liver piece.
However, it can also quite reliably be made out on an ultrasound examination and CT scan.
Certain liver enzyme tests can be done to diagnose liver diseases like fatty liver.
Alcohol consumption and obesity are leading causes of fatty liver.

Lose weight and reduce alcohol intake for good health!
Thanks for your query.
Wish you a healthy living.
