Background of the Study: It is an imaging technology sensitive to tissue stiffness that was first described in the 1990s. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is increasingly common in Western nations of the world. It is the most common form of chronic liver disease, affecting about one-quarter of the population, in the United States. Materials and Methods: Prospective studies of 100 patients with clinical impression of alcoholic were examined by Philips ultrasound imaging. Results: A total of 100 patients satisfying the inclusion criteria were included in the study. The age range of patients was from 18 years to elderly with male predominance, male 64 (64%), and female 36 (36%). Conclusion: In this study, a non-invasive and cost-effective technique, without any radiation hazards, to measure the elastic property of liver tissue using ultrasound imaging modality called as sonoelastography in Indian population for assessment of disease severity and grading of NAFLD.
