Shift of RP from liver to spleen.
Except with liraglutide 0. 6 mg/metformin, reductions were significantly different vs. changes seen with glimepiride (p < 0. 05) but not with placebo. Liver-to-spleen attenuation ratio increased with liraglutide 1. 8 mg/metformin possibly indicating reduced hepatic steatosis. LEAD-3: reductions in fat mass and fat percentage with liraglutide monotherapy were significantly different vs. increases with glimepiride (p < 0.

Gd-EOB-DTPAenhanced MR Imaging: Prediction of Hepatic Fibrosis Stages using Liver Contrast Enhancement Index and Liver-to-spleen.
A blind ending appendix may give trouble (appendicitis) if infected. The large intestine has three longitudinal muscle bands (taenia coli) with bulges in the wall (haustra) between them. These may evaginate in the elderly to become diverticuli and infected in diverticulitis. The large intestine resorbs water then eliminates drier residues as faeces. Regions recognised are the ascending colon, from appendix in right groin up to a flexure at the liver, transverse colon, liver to spleen.
The ROI values are averaged as a mean hepatic attenuation. To provide an internal control, the mean splenic attenuation is also calculated by averaging three random ROI values of splenic attenuation measurement. The largest possible ROI (size range: 200-400 mm2) is selected to represent splenic parenchymal attenuation. The liver attenuation index (LAI) is derived from the difference between mean hepatic attenuation and mean splenic attenuation and can be used as a parameter for prediction of the degree of macrovesicular steatosis. A difference in attenuation of the liver and spleen.
It appears that noncontrast CT scanning is more useful for detecting steatosis than contrast-enhanced scans [126]. Unenhanced CT is more commonly used than enhanced CT [127], and several techniques for determining the appropriate CT values include measurement of hepatic attenuation only [128, 129] and normalization of hepatic attenuation by splenic attenuation, reporting the difference in attenuation between the liver and spleen.
