Liver Ultrasound - What does this mean

I've had a liver biopsy and Ultrasound due to suspicion of autoimmune hepatitis since I have Sjogrens Syndrome.   My hepatologist is on vacation for awhile so I'm not able to get the answers.    I did get a paper copy of the ultrasound.  
What does this mean.....
IMPRESSION:
Probably echogenic and heterogenous appearing liver.  Findings consistent with fatty infiltration and/or chronic hepatocellular no intraheptic mass identified a small lesion could be obscured given echogenicity of hepatic parenchyma.   Relatively low resistive indices within the liver suggesting interstitial disease.

I know it's frustrating to have to wait for the interpretation of your tests!!  I wonder if you left out a word?  Maybe it read:

Findings consistent with fatty infiltration and/or chronic hepatocellar (inflammation?)

So they are noticing some issues with your liver though they cannot tell whether it's fatty tissue in the liver or "chronic hepatocellular"...the word that fits there is inflammation... or both.  People who have Hep C do have chronic inflammation by the nature of the disease.  They're saying they don't visualize a mass inside the liver tissue although one "could be obscured," or may not be visible.

That's the best I can do for you, maybe someone else will chime in.  Hope this helps a little.
