Key Words Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease; Computed tomography volumetry; Fibrosis stage; Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis
Core Tip This is a retrospective study to elucidate the morphological change in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) using computed tomography (CT) volumetry and to evaluate the diagnostic performance of CT volumetry for discriminating the fibrosis stage in NAFLD. The volume percentages of the caudate lobe calculated by CT volumetry were significantly increased with the increase in fibrosis stage in NAFLD. The volume percentage of the caudate lobe is a useful diagnostic parameter for staging fibrosis in patients with NAFLD. The evaluation of liver volume using CT volumetry is useful for predicting the fibrosis stage in NAFLD.
