obese or overweight patients with fatty liver or ectopic fat
Procedure: liver biopsy
Non invasive assessment of liver fibrosis and liver inflammation and steatosis is clinically relevant in patients exposed to non alcoholic fatty liver diseases.
The aim of the study is to find new clinico-biological and medical imaging parameters associated with non alcoholic steatohepatitis in overweight and obese patients.
Fatty liver and ectopic fat accumulation will be particularly assessed.
