What Is Hida Scan With Ejection Fraction
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
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
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
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
Hida scan looks normal with ejection at 87% but with moderate bile reflux. What is that and is the ejection rate high?
Bile reflux: Hida scan uses isotope injected intravenously then extracted from bloodstream by liver excreted through bile ducts, stored in gb eventually into duodeum. Duodenogastric Redux is bile going from duodenum back into stomach, sometimes causing bile gastritis. 83% high ejection fraction in some patients reported to cause symptoms releived by gb removal. Additional studies needed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 5 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ejection fraction: The 34% is the ejection fraction, the effectiveness of gallbladder contraction which is at around the lower end of normal. Talk to your doctor as I am sure this was done due to symptoms, and that is what your doctor is treating and may not necessarily be the numbers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Hida EF 83% with sludge, pain is on left. yellow D, gas, bloating, CT scans are neg for pancreas. Is hyperkenetic gallbladder an option?
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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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
