The hepato-renal ratio is a non-invasive method for liver steatosis quantification based on ultrasound image analysis. Its effectiveness has been validated in literature by means of liver biopsy and 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy. We propose a new and improved method for ROI selection and HRR assessment, designed to minimize both interobserver and inter-scan variability.

Abstract

The hepato-renal ratio is a non-invasive method for liver steatosis quantification based on ultrasound image analysis. Its effectiveness has been validated in literature by means of liver biopsy and 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy. We propose a new and improved method for ROI selection and HRR assessment, designed to minimize both interobserver and inter-scan variability.
