Development of the noninvasive imaging equipment for the diagnosis of visceral fat in the early stage has been eagerly anticipated. The ultrasonic velocity-change imaging method was applied to living rabbits fed on the standard diet and that on the high fat diet. Experimental results show that the ultrasonic velocity-change images give the information about the fat accumulation level in liver of rabbit. The ultrasonic velocity-change imaging method has possible application to the diagnosis of fatty liver in a living human body.
