CT scan is usually performed among patients with Alcoholic Hepatitis to exclude other abnormalities including neoplasm, biliary obstruction or infiltrative liver disease.CT scan can predict severity and outcome of Alcoholic Hepatitis by presence of splenomegaly, ascites, varices, liver length to mid clavicular line, decreased liver attenuation, liver to spleen attenuation ratio and increased liver heterogenecity.
