Pipida Scan Ejection Fraction
Resting HR 120-160 found in notes I also have Left ventricular ejection fraction 52% been passing out a lot should I be worried/is this the cause?
Unfortunately yes: You could be having a dangerous heart rhythm, leading to the passing out. The ejection fraction of 52% is still within the normal range; however, you are tachycardic at baseline, and the fast heart rate may overestimate your true ejection fraction as well as lead to heart damage. If you pass out again, I recommend calling 911, otherwise, see cardiologist ASAP. ...Read more
Could having a lap band interfere with gallbladder ejection fraction when given pipida scan with ensure?
Lap band: No having a lap band should not interfere with the gallbladder ejection fraction. ...Read more
Hida scan results ejection fraction rates 30% at 30minutes 46% at 45 minutes and 50% at 60 minutes. I am very symptomatic with eating, recorecommendat?
Depends on how the:
Gallbladder ejection fraction was performed. If the gallbladder contraction drug (cck or sincalide) was administered at a dose of 0.02 micrograms/kilogram over 1 hour, then a normal gallbladder ejection fraction would be greater than or equal to 38% at one hour.
Unfortunately, there is variability in the % depending on exactly how it is performed. Check with your doctor for what normal is. ...Read more
Hi doctors, was just wondering what is a normal ejection fraction %age on a hida scan? What's good, what's bad?
Greater than 35%: Normal ejection fraction in adults usually is greater than 35%. Significance of ejection fractions has to be compared to clinical signs and symptoms of patient. ...Read more
What does ejection fraction means? I'm having a hida scan tomorrow because i'v been diagnosed w/a gallbladder sludge
Ejection fraction is: A measure of how effectively the gallbladder releases bile when it contracts. During a hida scan, the gallbladder accumulates the radioactive substance. Another medication is then given (cck) which stimulates the gallbladder to contract. A special camera measures how well the gallbladder empties. This is reported as a percentage. If abnormal, this may be a source of pain without gallstones. ...Read more
Is there any study that shows using Half & Half in a HIDA scan is as accurate as CCK? My ejection fraction was 31%
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
What is likelyhood of GB removal with 0% ejection fraction after 30 mins. And 10% after 60 mins from HIDA scan? Are there any alternatives to removal?
Avoiding fatty food: Gall bladder ejection fraction of 0% is the lowest you can have. Normal ef is above 35%. The gall bladder is usually best removed for relief of symptoms. Avoiding fatty foods and watching diet may help symptoms for limited amount of time. If chronic gb disease suffer chronic pain. Acute chiolecystiitis iusually associataed with gall stones often is surgiical emergency. ...Read more
Is the ejection fraction painful during hida? I have a gallbladder sludge, and a nuclear med scan tomorrow.
CCK: To determine a gallbladder ejection fraction, a medication called cck is administered iv. Your body normally has its own cck which makes the gallbladder contract. The exogenous cck may simulate any symptoms which you feel when you normally eat a fatty meal. If you get cramping, nausea, etc.....You may experience this with cck. Symptoms are often more pronounced with rapid speed of injection. ...Read more
If the body doesn't produce cholecystokinin (for some reason), wouldn't the ejection fraction part of a hida scan produce a false negative?
CCK is injected:
For a hida scan the cck is given by IV injection: sincalide (cck) pretreatment is a c-terminal octapeptide of cholecystokinin (cck), in doses of 0.01–0.02 μg/kg, may be given intravenously, 30–60 min prior to the hepatobiliary tracer injection to minimize the
potential for a false-positive study (reference: http://interactive. Snm. Org/docs/pg_ch11_0703.Pdf) see guideline for more information.

I'm constantly nauseated when I eat! Is it because my gallbladder is only functioning 15%? Had hida scan which showed ejection fraction of 15%
Hi doctors, was just wondering what is considered a high gallbladder ejection fraction during a hida scan?
Usually normal: Hyperkinetic or hyperactive gallbladder is not generally accepted as a diagnosis. A small group of patients (63) was symptomatic with cck infusion with greater than 80% ejection fraction. 28 of these patients underwent removal of gall bladder. 97% of these 28 patients showed improvement in symptoms following surgery.. More published retrospective and prospective studies needed. ...Read more
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 more
Your hida scan is abnormal, with a low ejection fraction and reproduction of symptoms with the cck injection. What does this mean in layman's terms?
Gallbladder not work:
That mean your gallbladder is not working as good as it suppose to be
if you have symptoms of gallbladder colic consider medical treatment first if it did not work based on your symptoms make sure you do not have other upper digestive problems like ulcer or reflux or irritable bowel syndrome
your last solution should be surgery do not jump to surgery too fast your doctor will advise you. ...Read more
Pain in right upper quadrant. Went for HIDA SCAN shows gb ejection fraction of 32 percent being 35% is norm should I have surgery vs natural care?
You are 39 yrs old: Please try dietary restrictions, as well as lower fat and healthier lifestyle. If despite these efforts your pain continues, there are medications that might help. Surgery should be your last recourse, unless it gets infected, in which case you might need surgery sooner rather than later. Good health to you ...Read more
