Background. The purpose of this study is evaluation of using the principle of multiparametric ultrasound (mp-US) for the diagnosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Materials and methods. The investigation was carried out in Kyiv Endocrinology Centre in 2015–2017. Simultaneous ultrasonic examination of abdominal cavity was performed in all 105 patients using the device Soneus P7 (Ultrasign, Ukraine) and included В-mode, Doppler sonography, strain and shear wave elastography, steatography. Results. The examination of the abdominal cavity, quantitative evaluation of fatty liver, stiffness of the liver parenchyma and steatohepatitis were performed all 105 patients with NAFLD and T2DM. Conclusions. The principle of mp-US for detecting NAFLD in patients with T2DM is comprehensive method for the diagnosis of steatosis and steatography, quantitative evaluation of fatty liver, liver stiffness measurement.
