Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is very difficult to comment on your liver status just based on an image (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

Have they not provided you a report of this scan? For what symptoms were these tests are conducted.

Revert with the asked details for better help.

Thank you doctor,

I took this scan because after a liver function test showed high ALT (47). Doctor took an ultrasound and said I had a fatty liver. And I took a CT test to confirm if that was true or false. I wanted to know, is my liver fatty or not? My height is 180 cm and weigh about 73 kg. I am a non-smoker and heavy drinker for ten years (binge drink approximately 2-3 times or more a week).

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It seems that you are suffering from alcoholic fatty liver disease. Since your body weight is appropriate to your height, so I believe obesity is not the cause. The report also suggests fatty changes in the liver. I would recommend you to stop alcohol consumption completely. Discuss with your doctor to prescribe you Ursodeoxycholic acid for six weeks.

I hope this helps.
