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.

Daughter (teen) had hida scan and cried during cck section of test with pain. Does pain always mean gallbladder disease? (no results for few days)
HIDA scan: Cck during a hida scan (used to test for gallbladder dysfunction) simulates the eating of a fatty meal. If you have pain or nausea (re-creation of symptoms) during this portion, that is a good indication of dysfunction. The other thing to check is the gbef (gallbladder ejection fraction). Any number under 35% is usually considered abnormal. If pain with cck, too - even better evidence. ...Read more

Patent needs to have low expectations and classic symptoms ...Read more
What does ejection fraction means? I'm having a hida scan tomorrow because i'v been diagnosed w/a gallbladder sludge
Ejection fraction is: A measure of how effectively the gallbladder releases bile when it contracts. During a hida scan, the gallbladder accumulates the radioactive substance. Another medication is then given (cck) which stimulates the gallbladder to contract. A special camera measures how well the gallbladder empties. This is reported as a percentage. If abnormal, this may be a source of pain without gallstones. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What do you recommend if I had a hida scan and was told that my gallbladder was filling up slowlyis that something to worry about?
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.
