723 Possible Causes for Blood Urea Nitrogen Decreased, Diffuse Hepatic Steatosis, Immunoglobulin G Increased

  • Macronodular Cirrhosis

    On CT, an objective measurement using Hounsfield units of 48 on a noncontrast study is most accurate in diagnosing hepatic steatosis.[] Coarsened echotexture and changes of hepatic steatosis can be subjective ultrasound findings in chronic liver disease, often easier to delineate on cross-sectional CT and[] On ultrasound, the liver appears diffusely hyperechoic with internal reference made to the renal cortex and splenic parenchyma ( Figure 3 ).[]

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    OBJECTIVES: Characterise the demographics, management and outcomes of obstetric patients transported by emergency medical services (EMS). DESIGN: Prospective observational study.

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    It is well known that Laennec gave cirrhosis its name from the Greek word kirrhos (tawny), in a brief footnote to his treatise De l'auscultation médiate (1819), but the eponym "Laennec's cirrhosis" is rarely used in France. This article explores the reasons why North American physicians commemorate a French chest[…][]

  • Viral Hepatitis

    Viral hepatitis is liver inflammation due to a viral infection. It may present in acute form as a recent infection with relatively rapid onset, or in chronic form. The most common causes of viral hepatitis are the five unrelated hepatotropic viruses hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. Other viruses can also cause liver[…][]
