Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver disease(NAFLD) has become a serious problem in the USA. biopsy procedures are invasive and pose a high risk of morbidity. MRS of the liver along with volumetric visceral and subcutaneous fat measurement have shown to be an independent measure of fatty liver. This study investigates the correlation between volumetric fat measurements and hepatic fat fraction using HISTO technique.
