Normal Hida Scan Ejection Fraction
I have recently developed urq pain. Normal ultrasound, lab work and hida scan. Ejection fraction 98%. Pain worse after meals. Tender to touch. Nausea.
See a surgeon : Cholescintigraphy for acute cholecystitis has sensitivity of 97%, specificity of 94%. several investigators have found the sensitivity being consistently higher than 90% though specificity has varied from 73%- 99%, yet compared to ultrasonography, cholescintigraphy has proven to be superior. As you can see, at least 3% of the time the hida scan is wrong. You may need to find a surgeon who is willing to go in and take a look on the basis of an abnormal physical examination without undue reliance on testing. I woulddefinitely recommend a second opinion.Best wishes. The information above is from wikipedia. ...Read moreSee 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
Hi doctors, was just wondering what is a normal ejection fraction %age on a hida scan? What's good, what's bad?
I had a hida scan done result ejection fraction of 35% I am diabetic pain is worse since test and blood sugars are high is this normal?
Borderline result: 35% gb ejection fraction in most labs is borderline normal. Your physician has to consider gb ejection fraction along with symptoms of biliary colic for proper therapy.Ingestion of food prior to study does affect result. Being diabetic I do not know how many hours fasting prior to test. Usually 6-8 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can biliary dyskinesia GB recover to normal after stopping meds that cause low ejection fraction? How long would it take to recover b4 new HIDA scan?
Not likely: You almost certainly have mechanical obstruction of the GB, even though this may be only due to thickened bile, sludge, or gravel, and may be intermittent. Medications or supplements have virtually no influence on this process. Low fat diet can lessen the severity of symptoms by lessening GB contractions. See your doctor. ...Read more
Gallbladder ultra sound was normal w/NO stones... HIDA scan showed ejection fraction at 10%. I have frequent attacks, what are my chances of Gangrene?
My son had a hida scan that showed ejection fraction of 94%. He has been nauseous for 6 month. He had normal edg, norma ct, normal blood work. ?
Having mid-back pain to right of spine for hours after eating. Hida scan and gb ultrasound=normal. Ejection fraction=91%. Any ideas about the cause?
Possibly not gb: Most symptoms related to gall bladder occur in right upper quadrant of the abdomen. Your symptoms sound like other portions of the gastrointestinal tract may be involved, endoscopy, blood tests, and other imaging testing will examine large bowel and small bowel for possible contribution to your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there any study that shows using Half & Half in a HIDA scan is as accurate as CCK? My ejection fraction was 31%
Yes.: Here is the link for that study: http://jnm.snmjournals.org/content/43/12/1603.full It shows that there is wide variability in the ejection fraction measured when half and half, instead of CCK, is used in a HIDA scan. However, the study concludes that both methods are acceptable. Hope that helps! ...Read more
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
