Pipida Scan Ejection Fraction
Doctor ordered a HIDA scan without ejection fraction. What's the point if I won't see gallbladder ejection fraction?
Rule out Acute Chole: The doctor ordered it to make sure your cystic duct is open and you do not have an Acute Cholecystitis, a common bile duct or small bowel obstruction. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can biliary hyperkinesia damage gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or biliary tree? My ultrasound was normal, but ejection fraction=91%.
I had nuclear stress study done & interpretation states: Sm reversible ischemia, inferior wall. Ejection fraction 51%. is heart cath needed?
11yo with hida scan gallbladder ef 0.0% normal initial biliary scan no detectable gallbladder ef reproduced pain with cck what s this mean my child?
Gall bladder disease: Cck is natural hormone that stimulates gall bladder to contract. If ultrasound exam shows no calculi or gall bladder thickening, this uusally means gall bladder dyskinesia. Gall bladder does not contract normally causing pain and the ejection fraction is low. The cck should have been injected in a slow intravenous dose at time of study. Treatment usually involves consulting pediatric surgeion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is nuclear stress testing or echo more accurate for calculating ejection fraction? Nuclear says 67 percent echo says 48.
I have 3-7mm gallstones. Hida scan shows gallbladder function normal at 53%. Will i need gallbladder removed?
UltraSOUND: I think you mean cardiac ultrasound (also known as echocardiography). They look at different things. Echo sees over all function, wall thickness, chamber dimensions, valves, and can measure blood flow and pressure. Ct is for detecting calcium and looking at the coronary arteries. ...Read more
What does early homogeneous uptake of isotope within liver on a hida scan.. Is this ok? Also saod depressed gallbladder ejection fraction 10%
Normal: A hida scan is a gallbladder function test. The first medication is able to be followed as it goes through. The first thing seen is uptake by the liver. The liver takes the isotope out of the blood and dumps it in the bile. Once we see it in the gallbladder and bowel a 2nd med is given to tell the gb to work. The 10% is a decreased function of your gall bladder. Should be 50% +. See surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hello, is normal overall heart ejection fraction 65% (according the measuring from heart echo device)?
Yes: Completely, 100% normal!Get a more detailed answer ›
Having intermittent gallbladder attack symptoms, normal ultrasound (no stones), HIDA scan showed GBEF: 90%. Is this a high number? Problematic?
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
