Hello

Coarse echo texture of liver may indicate liver parenchymal disease.
Normal echo texture of liver is homogeneous.
Your husband may need clinical examination and few more investigations like complete viral markers for hepatitis B.It is important to assess status of infection whether it is in chronic,carrier phase etc.
Liver biopsy can be done if needed.

Treatment depend upon findings.Your husband may need drugs like ursodeoxycholic acid tablet.

Take Care
