What Is a Liver Ultrasound and How to Best Prepare for It 2023

Liver ultrasound is a diagnostic tool used to visualize the liver. 

The liver is a large organ located in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen 

and it plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification. 

An ultrasound probe is placed on the skin over the liver,  

and high-frequency sound waves are used to create images of the organ. 

Liver ultrasounds are usually safe and painless,  

but there are some things you should do to prepare for the procedure.
