Hida Scan With Cck Results
Norman HIDA scan results but pain during CCK injection made my already pain ten times worse what does this mean?
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
False positives: Variability in results depends on method of test, interpretative skills,patient symptoms. It is not perfect.If gb ejection fraction is low in patient with biliary colic , chronic gall bladder disease /biliary dyskinesia probable.

In 2010 had hida scan results were 23%. In 2012 results were 50%. No pain during test but shortly after. Does gb get better or change from day to day.?

There also is a day-to-day variation in that it responds to recent meals, recent medications. Also, it is possible that the technique in 2010 was different than the technique in 2012. Timing of cck admin can greatly affect results. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
When given cck during hida scan got very sick with some cramps.Results were 30percent function of gb. My gb us was normal.Should I have gb taken out?
Probably: Gallbladder with tc99m hida demonstrates extraction from blood stream of radiopharmaeujtical, then excretion into bowel with some storage in gb. Cck, cholecystokinin, stimulates gb to contract. Normal ejection fraction is usually above 35%.Getting symptoms from injection of cck and low ef of 30% suggests gall bladder needs to be removed. Us of gb can be normal without stones when gb has dyskinesia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
