Core Tip An accurate estimation of the fat in the liver is important in the diagnostic work-up of patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Ultrasound B-mode imaging, which is widely used for the screening of liver disease, allows to subjectively estimate fatty infiltration in the liver; however, it has a low performance for the detection of mild steatosis. To partly overcome this limitation, some semi-quantitative scores have been proposed. Quantitative ultrasound is based on the analysis of the radiofrequency signals detected by an US system, and it allows to calculate objective parameters for quantifying the fat in the liver.
