What Is A Normal Ejection Fraction For Gallbladder
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
The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct. The gallbladder can store bile when the bile is not needed, and can squeeze bile into the bile duct and intestine for digestion when a person eats larger ...Read more
HIDA scan EF>35%: Most radiologists state a normal gallbladder ejection fraction (ef) on a hida scan as 35% or above. A low ejection fraction can be due to gallbladder dyskinesia, chronic cholecystitis (infection), and rarely cancer. A good answer for 'hida scan results' =http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/hida-scan/my00320/dsection & from the an original journal article =radiology.Rsna. Org/content/226/2/593.1.Full. ...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?
Can biliary hyperkinesia damage gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or biliary tree? My ultrasound was normal, but ejection fraction=91%.
Al least 50%: It should be at least 50%. More important, however, is if the injection of cck at the time of the study replicates your pain. If so, cholecystectomy may be in order. ...Read more
No-2 Diff. Diseases: "sludge" is a common finding in the gb during pregnancy, rapid wt loss, or fasting; it usually has no clinical consequence, although some people clearly progress to gallstone formation. "biliary dyskinesia" is a condition where the gallbladder does not empty well, leading to pain that simulates a gb attack; this is diagnosed by a cck-hida scan. Most people w/biliary dyskinesia do not have sludge. ...Read more
Reduced gb ejection: Gallbladder ef determined as percentage emptying of gall bladder on hida nuclear medicine study with administration of cck (cholecystokinin, hormone). In adults usually greater than 35% is normal. Low gbef can be related to gall bladder disease or dyskinesia. Usually compared to findings on ultrasound such as gall stones or wall thickening. Gbef affected by degree of fasting and pain medications. ...Read more
Usually gb disease: Decreased ejection fraction is less than 35%. May mean chronic gall bladder disease or biliary dyskinesia. If symptoms of biliary colic (gall bladder disease) may receive relief with gall bladder removal. Work up of gall bladder disease usually includes ultrasound study looking for gall stones. ...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
My temp is 99.8 and it flucuates all day. By evening it is fine. My gallbladder is 9% ejection fraction. No stones. Could this be from gallbladder?
Yes, it can: But other causes are more likely. Usually, gallbladder problems cause fever when it progresses to acute cholecystitis. Depending on how long you have had the fluctuating low grade fever, ask your doctor if he can find other causes of it, such as infection, inflammation, or even malignancy. ...Read more
Less than 35%: By convention most adult nuclear labs use above 35% as normal values. However these values are usually in conjunction with symptoms, biliary colic, that are consistent. There are individuals who can have normal gbef that have disease. These patients have biliary dyskinesia, a motility disorder, of gb. Some believe in hyperkinetic gb ejection fraction over 75% associated with symptoms. ...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
What happens if my gallbladder ejection fraction is 0%. Do I have to get it out? Will I not be able to digest fat?
Not necessarily: You do not have to get your gallbladder removed. People with decreased gallbladder ejection fraction (<50%) often have symptoms related to this problem such as pain on the right side after eating, inability to tolerate fatty foods and bloating. > than 80% of people will get better after having thier gallbladder removed. Rarely people have trouble digesting fats after surgery (cramps/ diarrhea). ...Read more
What happens to bile stored by the gallbladder when the gallbladder has been proven to have an ejection fraction of 1%?
Gallbladder: The gallbladder does store extra bile. Bile is usually squeezed from the gallbladder into the bile duct when one eats. An ejection fraction study is one estimate at one time showing how the gallbladder empties at that one time. Bile will still likely escape from the gallbladder when one eats, even with a very low ejection fraction. It just empties slower. ...Read more
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'm constantly nauseated when I eat! Is it because my gallbladder is only functioning 15%? Had hida scan which showed ejection fraction of 15%
Gallbladder ejection fraction rate of 14.8, then 33.3, then 33.3 then 68.7 during the same test? Referred to surgeon. Can gallbladder be removed?
68.7% EF is normal: An ejection fraction of 68.7% is normal, and as such perhaps an alternative culprit should be considered for your symptoms. ...Read more
What can you tell me about hyperactive gallbladder? Ejection fraction 90% last year, and 94% this year. Should it be removed if symptoms persist?
Maybe: 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'm a 31 year old male, had a HIDA scan on my gallbladder, my ejection fraction results were 13.7%. What am I looking at in terms of treatment?
Gallbladder ejection fraction 15% but ultra sound shows no stones. Am I more susceptible to stones since not functioning?
Increased risk: Low gallbladder ejection fraction is found in chronic cholecystitis, which can cause chronic right upper quadrant pain and nausea. The poor gallbladder emptying leads to stasis of bile and other components that make up gallstones, leading to an increased likelihood of stone formation. ...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

Will a hida scan show if gallbladder is acute vs chronic. My ejection fraction 7%. Pain even when not eating. Some nausea. Vomited x1?
It does: In acute chokecystitis, the hida scan will typically show obstruction of the cystic duct (the duct to the gallbladder) this results in a nonviualized gallbladder. In chronic cholecystitis the gallbladder can be seen, meaning the duct is open. A stimulant is then given and the ability of the gallbladder to empty is measured. 50-75% ejection is normal. Less than 25% is considered dysfunctional. ...Read more
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 more
Hida scan showed gallbladder ejection fraction 33.4%. No stones but have constant pain x 2weeks and unable to eat. What is the likelihood of surgery?
96% ejection fraction hida. Still pain and discomfort. No gallstones in ultrasound. Will my gallbladder still need to be removed?
Those results: Are normal, maybe your pain is not related to the gallbladder. ...Read more
I have gallbladder with 0% ejection fraction and no stones and constant pain below rib, which is tolerable, can this cause dizziness and headache?
Gallbladder: Symptoms from a gallbladder condition are upper abdominal pains or pressure bloating after eating with nausea & sometimes vomiting. Dizziness & headaches by themselves would not be expected to be gallbladder related. An isolated hida scan finding without other identifiable gallbladder symptoms may not have much clinical meaning. ...Read more
Can 19% gallbladder ejection fraction lead to elevated levels of amylase/lipase? No stones/sludge found; problem started while pregnant but persists.
My HIDA scan showed my gallbladder had a 6%ejection fraction. Should my gallbladder be removed? Also intermittent pain and pale stools
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 more
Is it possible to have gallbladder disease w/50% ejection fraction? Hidascan w/cck caused same pain I have. Constant upper right quad pain, nausea increases with exercise, headaches above right eye
Maybe not...: Hida scans measure several things--uptake ; excretion of hida by liver, gallbladder function, ductal patency/ function. Cck is given to stimulate gallbladder contraction--mimicking food entering the duodenum from stomach. If the gallbladder has a sluggish ejection fraction (ef. ...Read more
Ejection fraction: In 37 yf the ejection fraction should be normal between 55-70%. Provided you do not have any heart problem. To be precise exact, doctor has to know wt, cardiac out put, heart rate, stroke volume& lvedv. Women have slightly high stroke volume. Not very much gender difference for ef%. Age certainly plays role. Elderly people have lessef%. Ef also depends on modality of test. Good luck. ...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
