Hida Scan Normal Range
My HIDA scan results show 30% functioning and I was told it was not within the normal range yesterday after the scan. My doc. Np says this is normal?
Borderline result?: Surgeons may consider cholecystectomy appropriate to your symptom presentation and database (lab results, other x-rays, exam). Certainly if your liver tests are abnormal further liver/biliary testing will likely be recommended. See your doctor who can direct you to the next appropriate test.See 1 more doctor answer
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
ER abnormal: On a HIDA scan an ejection ratio of 40% or greater is normal. ER of 1.25% is very low. This usually indicates gallbladder disease. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
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.
Us and. Hida scan all normal, except did show sludge, but I still have all the symptoms and the pain, now what? Getting frustrated
Probably not gb: Sludge or gravel in gall bladder does not usually cause symptoms and can disappear with time. Endoscopy, blood tests, and other imaging testing can examine stomach, large bowel and small bowel for possible contribution to your symptoms. Abdominal symptoms can be related to stomach, pancreas, liver etc. Another option is to follow gall bladder diet with elimination of certain foods to see if helps.
Diagnostic tests: Are helpful only when they are positive. If you have typical gallbladder symptoms, it could still be the problem. If all studies are negative, consult a GI specialist.See 2 more doctor answers
Results were normal from an ultrasound and hida scan, what else can I do to figure out what's wrong?
other G.I problems: If the ultrasound and hida scan are completely normal, it is very likely that you do not have any biliary tree problems. However, many other diseases may mimic some hepatobiliary diseases such as ulcers or inflammation of the oesophagus, stomach or duodenum. Blood tests may also be useful to rule out the presence of h.Pilori which may cause similar symptoms.See 2 more doctor answers
Is it possible to have abnormal hida scan, but watch diet and live a normal healthy life without having gallbladder removed?
Yes: A radionuclide scan (hida, pipida) is a study of the function and emptying of the gallbladder. We typically think of abnormal results as less than 35 or 40%; however, I have seen many patients with bilary pain with "normal" results as well as patients with abnormal results but essentially no symptoms. The best place for hida is in concert with other tests (blood, u/s, physical exam.See 2 more doctor answers
I just had my HIDA scan results come back. The percentage is 76%, is this normal or is that considered an over active gallbladder?
I have 3-7mm gallstones. Hida scan shows gallbladder function normal at 53%. Will I need gallbladder removed?
Not neccesarily: Depends on if you have symptoms?Get a more detailed answer ›
Having intermittent gallbladder attack symptoms, normal ultrasound (no stones), HIDA scan showed GBEF: 90%. Is this a high number? Problematic?
Gall bladder: The ultrasound and gbef are reassuring. Yes normal. Do your best to eliminate fatty foods. No chocolate either. You may have crystals forming. Achieve ideal wt. Eat smaller meals.See 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal to have bad diarrhea after a hida scan? They gave me an injection and a thick liquid?
Probably unrelated: The injection you received should not cause any side effects. I am not sure exactly what liquid you had, but it was most likely something high in fat concentration (ex: half-and-half creamer) to stimulate the gallbladder. If you are sensitive to fatty/milk-based foods, this is the most likely explanation.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi doctors, was just wondering what is a normal ejection fraction %age on a hida scan? What's good, what's bad?
Gall Bladder EF was 15% 3 years ago and I just had a HIDA scan repeat... It was 63%. Does this mean I'm normal now?
I have had a ctscan. Hida scan and stress test all normal but still pain in middle chest. Right side. Is ef 89 normal for hida scan?
Hyperkinetic gb: Most physicians in nuclear medicine and gastroenterology believe that increased ejection fraction of gall bladder is probably normal (above 35%). A well known nuclear physician reported small group of patients with hyperkinetic gall bladder (above 80% ejection fraction) getting relief with removal of gb. More studies needed to convince most surgeons.See 1 more doctor answer
I have all the classic symptoms of a gallbladder problem. But my ultrasound and HIDA scan were normal. HIDA scan 94 percent. What else can cause?
What can a hida scan find that an ultrasound cannot find? Aren't there multiple things other than gallbladder dysfunction? Ultrasound was normal.
A lot.: After the tracer is injected into a vein, it must circulate to the liver. The liver must remove it from the blood and put it into the bile, liver circulation and function assured. The tracer, now in the bile, travels through the bile system and into the gall bladder, checking patency of these. A gall bladder stimulant can be used to measure gall bladder function and ejection out into bowel.See 2 more doctor answers
