A 20-year-old female asked:

I got a hida scan and it showed 41%. is this normal or should it be concerning?

No: It sounds like you had a CCK test with the Hida scan which is used to determine gallbladder function. The cutoff for the "ejection fraction" or the ability of the gallbladder to contract is considered to be 35%. Thus your ejection fraction, while on the low side, would still be within the range of normal.
