The fatty liver is one of diseases that can be discovered when performing
routine abdominal ultrasound and noted that its prevalence increased.
Although of its wide prevalence and serious prognosis, there was no previous
study determined the prevalence of fatty liver in Sudanese.
The main objective of this study was to know the prevalence of fatty liver
disease in adult Sudanese using ultrasonography; linking it by obesity. One
hundred and fourteen patients aging between 18 to74 years were scanned at
the year of 2015 attended to the Ribat Universal Hospital. (Khartoum Sudan)
for routine abdominal ultrasound. Coronal, axial and longitudinal scans done
to well prepared patients at supine position with hold inspiration using
