Losing weight may decrease liver fat deposition.
Has liver steatosis worsened since these reports taken three years back.
The images you uploaded is T1 weighted fat saturated meaning you already suppressed the fat. We normally look at before fat T1 before fat suppression and after suppression to decide how much fat there is in liver. I am so sorry, I won't be able to decide from those images. Furthermore, it would not be an accurate comparison between ultrasound and mri. Hope this answers you question. One more thing fatty liver is not very rare and personally I would not be that much concerned about the diagnosis. I would still try to lose weight for a healthier life though.
