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
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. ...Read more

Is it possible to have abnormal hida scan, but watch diet and live a normal healthy life without having gallbladder removed?

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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
