11yo with hida scan gallbladder ef 0.0% normal initial biliary scan no  detectable gallbladder ef reproduced  pain with cck what s this mean my child?

Gall bladder disease: Cck is natural hormone that stimulates gall bladder to contract. If ultrasound exam shows no calculi or gall bladder thickening, this uusally means gall bladder dyskinesia. Gall bladder does not contract normally causing pain and the ejection fraction is low. The cck should have been injected in a slow intravenous dose at time of study. Treatment usually involves consulting pediatric surgeion. ...Read more

Hida Scan (Definition)

Patient is injected intravenously with isotope tagged to chemical hida that is extracted preferentially by liver cells mimicking bile. Some of this is stored in gall bladder and some enters small bowel from common bile duct. Cholecystokinin is a natural hormone slowly injected intravenously to stimulate gall bladder contraction. Normal function has at least 50% ...Read more

During hida scan gallbladder did not release to the small intestine within 1 hour. After cck was given it released. Does it mean liver problems?

During hida scan gallbladder did not release to the small intestine within 1 hour.  After cck was given it released. Does it mean liver problems?

Not usually liver: If hida was excreted normally by liver and gall bladder visualized at normal time the liver is normal. Sometimes gall bladder dyskinesia can affect gall bladder emptying. The more important finding is the amount of activity excreted after cck (gb ejection fraction, normal usually above 35%) and symptoms encountered during this phase of study. ...Read more

I'm still hurting had a hida scan done gallbladder is at 53% could I still need it out?

I'm still hurting had a hida scan done gallbladder is at 53% could I still need it out?

RUQ pain: Yes you may very well still need a Gall Bladder removal. If your HIDA was done with CCK (Cholestokinin) it could help in that decision if your pain is reproduced. If CCK is negative you may need a CT scan of your Abdomen. I would recommend a consult with liver function test results as well ...Read more

Got hida scan of gallbladder, ejection was 94% which is good. But am bein sent to Genral surgeon and dont know why. Why would this happen?

Gall bladder: Despite the normal hida scan, you may still have gall stones, polyp or sludge in the gall bladder but no obstruction. If you have either of these along with gall bladder type symptoms or large polyp, removal of the gall bladder may be recommended. Of course your physician who knows all the facts of your case is best qualified to answer your question. ...Read more

So I got a hida scan my gallbladder isn't functioning recommended surgery my question is would this cause my blood work to show elevated liver emzymes?

So I got a hida scan my gallbladder isn't functioning recommended surgery my question is would this cause my blood work to show elevated liver emzymes?

HIDA Scan: If your HIDA scan showed poor gallbladder emptying, that doesn't necessarily mean you will have abnormal liver function tests. Your gallbladder isn't contracting very well, causing distention and pain. This doesn't effect bile flow from your liver. If there is associated inflammation (diagnosed by ultrasound), then there may be a slight elevation of some of your liver function tests. ...Read more

I've had a CT and us of the abdomen and it was ok and i had a hida scan show gallbladder at 9%. No stones. What eventually happens? Complications?

Your choice...: Your cck-hida indicates gallbladder dysfunction, which often translates to mean a symptomatic one that warrants surgical removal. There are lots of reasons however for biliary-type dyspepsia, and you may want to investigate these before considering surgery. Indeed, your symptoms may persist even if the gallbladder is removed, since it may turn out it wasn't the sole reason for your distress. ...Read more

Does 45% hida scan mean my gallbladder is getting sick?

No.: There are typically 2 ways to use the results of a hida scan. If the gallbladder doesn't appear, then that is consistent with disease (called cholecystitis). If the functioning of the gallbladder is poor with a ejection fraction less than 30%, it is called dyskinesia and may be a cause for problems. ...Read more

My hida scan said my gallbladder is working at 29%. What does that mean?

Borderline: That means that after they stimulated your gallbladder, it ejected 29% of the radioactive tracer. Typically if it is less than 30-35% (depending on the lab), it indicates some type of gallbladder dysfunction as the etiology of a person's pain that may be helped by surgical intervention. However, since you are on the borderline, your physician will make a decision based on your clinical condition. ...Read more

Gallbladder (Definition)

The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct. The gallbladder can store bile when the bile is not needed, and can squeeze bile into the bile duct and intestine for digestion when a person eats larger ...Read more
