Commentary

The aim of the study was to assess ultrasound attenuation coefficient in adult liver and spleen. The authors calculated attenuation coefficient liver to spleen ratio in 36 adult volunteers. There were 12 normal livers and 24 steatotic livers in this study.

Liver attenuation coefficient increased, and spleen attenuation coefficient did not change following the development of hepatic steatosis. It appears that the feasibility of attenuation coefficient liver to spleen ratio in determining hepatic steatosis needs further investigation.
