Radiologist 's  Response

USG findings indicate fatty changes in liver. Hepatomegaly may be due to deposition of fat in the liver cells. Increased echotexture suggests fatty liver. Most commonly it is due to obesity and sedentary life. It is also related to alcohol intake etc.

I suggest investigations like routine hemogram, Random blood sugar(RBS), Liver function test(LFT), Lipid profile, Renal function test(RFT) to my patients.

Fatty liver is a reversible condition and it can be reversed by diet and life style changes.
You may need some medicines after full investigations.

Your findings also suggests 6 mm calculus in mid pole of left kidney.Since it is non obstructing,you may only need follow up.You should drink plenty of water and you should consult urologist.

I was just diagnosed with moderate to severe right-sided hydronephrosis and hydroureter, with the point of obstruction at the junction of the mid distal third ureter. What does this all mean? They said there is no definite mass seen, and no definite adenopathy. I m having a ureteroscopy with possible biopsy done this week. I m nervous and confused... I do have a 3mm stone up in the same kidney.

I hope so! Sclerotic liver was a word just used to me after a test taken that showed high portal tension, I also had a Transjugular biopsy of the liver today as well. Without even getting back the results of the biopsy yet , the doctor just told me my liver is sclerotic! This is extremely crushing news to me as I am a liver recipient of a new transplantthat was done in April 2012, and I have been protecting and trying very hard to take very good care of my health so I can begin to enjoy my new opportunity at life. I am crushed and he had no good explanation of what this new word thrown out at me now means.

Hello. I have been having intense itching of the skin with no rash for about three months. Cortizone creams and antifungals or lotions for dry skin do not help at all. The itching can occur anywhere and moves from place to place. It has occured on my wrists, ankles, legs, feet, and back at various times. I wondered if there were any possible internal causes such as kidney or liver problems that could cause this. What tests could be run to find out? I am miserable!
