hyperechoic appearance

hyperechoic appearance of subcutaneous fatty layer of abdominal wall in supraumbilical region. Can anyone explain the meaning of it.????
Avatar dr f tn
Hi,
How are you? What symptoms are present? Subcutaneous fat is usually found just below the covering layer of skin and may present as hypoechoic with thin linear septations of connective tissue.  The change in density may be attributed to pathologic issues such as infection or presence of lipoma among other conditions. It is best that you discuss the results with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Factors that are important considerations are the medical history, symptoms present, and results of other diagnostic tests. Take care and do keep us posted.
