To know what this means in your case you should discuss this with your doctor. This I a patient support community there are no medical professionals here and we cannot diagnose any medical condition. Even a medical professional would need more information from additional testing to be able to make a specific diagnosis for your situation.
The ultrasound sees the surface texture of the liver which should be smooth. Apparently your liver has a coarse surface texture which could indicate the liver disease or scarring.
This means you do not have a liver disease if you did it would say Nodule but your liver is smooth
My abdominal ulttasound says coarse echotexture consistent with cirrhosis. Mine does not say nodules my liver surface is not smooth it is coarse
Maybe the mean there is a smooth surface in the Billary channels hard to say for sure what they mean
