ABSTRACT:-
Background: In addition to helping to detect interior body structures, ultrasonography is very sensitive in identifying cystic lesions of the liver. One has the chance to assess further data regarding other abdominal organs that may alter the patient's prognosis and treatment plan. Aim: To assess the cystic lesions of the liver using ultrasonography, taking into account the demographic characteristics, symptomatology, ultrasonographic features, and diagnostic accuracy. Materials and methods: 40 patients with liver cystic lesions presenting with clinical symptoms were included in the study. They were assessed using abdominal ultrasonography, which revealed cystic lesions in the liver and indicated the necessity for interventional treatment and follow-up. The research was a descriptive, observational study conducted at a hospital. Results: Due to a variety of unhealthy habits, 40 patients—50% of whom were male and 50% of whom were female—were evaluated. These patients had complained of pain and swelling in their right hypochondrium. Ultrasonography was used to properly diagnose and assess the liver cystic lesion for future care. Conclusion: The study of choice in liver pathology is ultrasound since it is non-invasive, radiation-free, and can show structural changes in the organ. It can also quickly identify solid to cystic lesions and characterize their size, shape, and extent.
