Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
smooth outline means, liver surface is smooth, there is accumulation of fat in liver cells (hepatocytes), and there is destruction of few liver cells in the left part of liver, vascular system is normal in liver and some atheromatous plaque with calcium deposition in it. and bile draining canals are of normal size, this report shows some damage to liver cells...
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
