Hida Scan With Cck
Why did they stop the HIDA scan (without CCK) before testing the ejection fraction? Can't that be a problem of its own?
Yes: Did they have CCk? It is not generally available. Have to substitute standardized fatty meal. Otherwise results are equivocal. Sometimes clinicians will not use CCK if suspect acute obstruction of biliary system or if no activity is in gall bladder. Should ask institiution performing the test for explanation. CCK or fatty meal substitute gives indication of gall bladder function. ...Read more
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
I have to have a HIDA scan with CCK and can't take my meds. Would weed affect the test? I don't smoke but I am afraid of the pain and nausea w/o meds.
Probably not, but…: The whole point of the test is to measure how well your gallbladder works when you are not on any medications or other substances. Because you don't know the effects of marihuana on your gallbladder, I would try to avoid this before the test so that you don't mess up the results of the HIDA scan. If you don't smoke marijuana now, this would not be a good time to start. Good luck. ...Read more
I had a HIDA scan without CCK and it came back normal, but I am having severe gallbladder pain. Would the CCK have detected something else?
Maybe: HIDA without CCK looks for bile duct or for gallbladder blockage. Do you have gallstones on ultrasound? If you do have gallstones, then CCK testing may not be needed. Testing with CCK is used to identify how well the gallbladder is emptying. The CCK injection can be replaced by the radiologist having you drink fatty high calorie drink instead (like Ensure). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm getting a HIDA scan w/ CCK on Tuesday. What are the rules of physical contact with my 3 month old and 3 yr old afterwards? Since it's radioactive?
Reduced contact: A HIDA scan uses technetium-99 which has a half life of 6 hours. There are a few precautions that you should take if you are breast feeding your 3 month-old. Since you will want to pump and dump your breast milk for 24 hours after, you will want to store a days supply of milk ahead of time. You will also need to reduce your contact with both kids for 1 day, so no co-sleeping us using a sling. ...Read more

Hida scan cck showed sluggish movement, 20 ejection , end of bile duct narrowed. Having mrsd, meanwhile put on creon . Why ?
Bile duct stenosis: Narrowing of bile duct is usually detected by endoscopy (direct visualization) or mrcp (magetic resonance cholangiopancreatography). Mrcp also evaluates pancreas. Ductal narrowing can be caused by dyskinesia / spasticity, inflammation, or external pressure from tumor. Gall bladder ejection fraction of 20% usually refers to gall bladder disease or dyskinesia. Creon helps digestion with enzymes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
