Abstract: This study was to investigate the practical value of quantitative parameters of multi-slice spiral CT (MSCT) in clinical evaluation of hepatic steatosis. 139 patients with fatty liver who were clearly diagnosed were selected as the fatty liver group, and 70 volunteers who underwent physical examination without liver disease during the same period were selected as the control group. Fatty liver group's liver fat percentage β value, total abdominal fat area (TFA), intra-abdominal fat area (VFA), subcutaneous fat area (SFA) measured values were higher than those of the control group (P<0.05). The liver CT values and liver bone mineral density (BMD) values of the fatty liver group were lower than those of the control group (P<0.05). The AUC values of liver CT value, liver BMD value, liver fat content percentage β value, TFA, VFA and SFA in diagnosing fatty liver were 0.609, 0.567, 0.896, 0.725, 0.848 and 0.674, respectively. MSCT quantitative parameters have high practical value in the clinical evaluation of liver fatty lesions, which can be comprehensively judged from several aspects such as the percentage of liver fat content β value and the area of fat in the abdominal cavity.
