Yes! Ultrasound not only can diagnose fatty liver, but it can semi-quantitatively determine the severity of the steatosis.
I am trying to find pictures to compare with my ultrasound liver pictures. Are there pictures anywhere?
I have uploaded two pictures in this post. One is a normal liver ultrasound.  The other one is a fatty liver
Can an enlarged liver be reduced ?

The upper is an image of a normal liver, the bottom is a picture of a fatty liver. You can see that it is more brighter in the lower image
