Measurement of the power spectra of liver scans reveals that the radiocolloid distribution in the human liver behaves as a fractal object. Analysis of the power spectra suggests that the fractal dimension of the functional units of the liver changes with disease state, and that power spectral slope may be a useful classifier for the presence of disease. Models are proposed that relate the power spectral slope to the fractal dimension of the liver parenchyma.
