What is a normal ejection fraction for gallbladder?

HIDA scan EF>35%: Most radiologists state a normal gallbladder ejection fraction (ef) on a hida scan as 35% or above.

You stated that you have Gilbert's disease. Thus the doctor may also want to see if you have acute hepatocellular disease. The Ejection fraction will tell him if you do or do not have chronic cholecystitis. ...Read more
