During a HIDA scan, what is a normal gallbladder ejection fraction?

>35 %

Ejection_fraction
A normal Gallbladder ejection fraction is usually over 35%. Anything less than this would be considered dysfunction of the gallbladder or biliary dyskinesia.

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is considered a high gallbladder ejection fraction during a hida scan?

Usually normal

Stringio
Hyperkinetic or hyperactive gallbladder is not generally accepted as a diagnosis. A small group of patients (63) was symptomatic with CCK infusion with greater than 80% ejection fraction. 28 of these patients underwent removal of gall bladder. 97% of these 28 patients showed improvement in symptoms following surgery. . More published retrospective and prospective studies needed

What does early homogeneous uptake of isotope within liver on a hida scan.. is this ok? Also saod depressed gallbladder ejection fraction 10%

Normal

Depression
A HIDA scan is a gallbladder function test. The first medication is able to be followed as it goes through. The first thing seen is uptake by the Liver. The liver takes the isotope out of the blood and dumps it in the bile. Once we see it in the gallbladder and bowel a 2nd med is given to tell the GB to work. The 10% is a decreased function of your gall bladder. Should be 50% +. See surgeon

What does ejection fraction means? I'm having a HIDA scan tomorrow because i'v been diagnosed w/a gallbladder sludge

Gallblad. contractio

Ejection_fraction
The ejection fraction of a gallbladder is a measurement of its contraction. With a computer, the number of counts in the gallbladder is calculated before and after medication such as CCK or fatty meal. A normal gallbladder ejection fraction is more then 40%, meaning that more than 40% of the gallbladder content is ejected out of the gallbladder following its contraction.

Will a Hida scan show if gallbladder is acute vs chronic. My ejection fraction 7% . Pain even when not eating .Some nausea. Vomited x1?

It does

Open-uri20130324-3557-czj70w
In acute chokecystitis, the HIDA scan will typically show obstruction of the cystic duct (the duct to the gallbladder) This results in a nonviualized gallbladder. In Chronic cholecystitis the gallbladder can be seen, meaning the duct is open. A stimulant is then given and the ability of the gallbladder to empty is measured. 50-75% ejection is normal. Less than 25% is considered dysfunctional

Dr. Fidias De Leon answered:

I'm constantly nauseated when I eat! Is it because my gallbladder is only functioning 15%? had HIDA scan which showed ejection fraction of 15%

Yes

Ejection_fraction
A low EF suggest gallbladder dysfunction, which may cause nausea and abdominal pain after meals. Check with your doctor for treatment options.

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is a normal ejection fraction %age on a hida scan? What's good, what's bad?

GBEF

Open-uri20140118-2322-1cj5ofm
The values vary depending on where you look but below 35% is abnormal. Patients often benefit from cholecystectomy when EF is less than 35%. Some institutions use different protocols. Infusion of CCK is sometimes performed over 30 min and sometimes over 60 minutes.

I had a hida scan done result ejection fraction of 35% I am diabetic pain is worse since test and blood sugars are high is this normal?

Borderline result

Gallbladder_diseases
35% gb ejection fraction in most labs is borderline normal. Your physician has to consider gb ejection fraction along with symptoms of biliary colic for proper therapy.Ingestion of food prior to study does affect result. Being diabetic I do not know how many hours fasting prior to test. Usually 6-8 hours.

Dr. Jerry Froelich answered:

If the body doesn't produce cholecystokinin (for some reason), wouldn't the ejection fraction part of a HIDA scan produce a FALSE NEGATIVE?

CCK is injected

Body
For a HIDA scan the CCK is given by IV injection: Sincalide (CCK) pretreatment is a C-terminal octapeptide of cholecystokinin (CCK), in doses of 0.01–0.02 μg/kg, may be given intravenously, 30–60 min prior to the hepatobiliary tracer injection to minimize the potential for a false-positive study (reference: http://interactive.snm.org/docs/pg_ch11_0703.pdf ) See Guideline for more information. -
