What Is The Difference Between Pipida Scan And Hida Scan
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 is easy: Hida scan is a common test by nuclear medicine. Hida is injected into blood, then is taken up by your liver & excreted into the bile ducts. If your gallbladder functions (is not sick), it will "light up" when it concentrates the hida material. Giving cck then allows measurement of gallbladder emptying time, patency of the bile ducts, & how effectively the hida material enters your small bowel. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Up or down: It is really depend if the numbers are going down mean your gallbladder function getting worst if is up and down the test is not reliable and depend on your symptoms if the fluctuation up and down but still below 30% your gallbladder could be the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HIDA: Hida scan involves IV injection of a tc tracer. The tracer doesn't cause any side effects. Physicians look to be sure that the gallbladder and bowel fill with tracer to rule out cystic duct (cholecystitis) or common bile duct obstruction. Hida is performed with or without cck. Cck is helpful for chronic conditions to determine a gallbladder ejection fraction. Cck may cause cramping or pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many things: Liver function, bile ducts, gall bladder, and bowel. Hida mimics bile excretion in body. Obstructions to duct of gall bladder, main bile duct, spasm of sphincter where bile duct enters duodenum. Cystic dilatations or outpouchings of common bile duct called choledochal cysts. In infants, lack of bile ducts or biliary atresia. Sometimes bowel obstruction or malrotation. Duodenogastric reflux/bile gastritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Gall bladder test: The patient is injected intravenously with tc99m hida (radiotracer). The liver extracts the material from blood stream and excretes it into bile ducts, gall bladder, and bowel. (30-60 min imaging) usually when gall bladder is full, patient is injected IV with cck (hormone to contract gb)patient may experience some pain, and calculate % of gb emptying (60 min. Imaging) normal usually > 35% in adults. ...Read more
Yes: Hida scan is a method to look at the ability of the liver to excrete a radioactive dye - a nuclear medicine study. It may tell if there is blockage of bile coming out of the liver or if the gallbladder is not working. Since it does not involve instrumentation of the pancreas, it does not worsen pancreatitis. It does have limitations, cannot be used if the bilirubin is elevated and not specific. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Depends if symptoms related to biliary colic. Other alternatives are diet avoiding fatty foods that can cause gall bladder attacks. 15% is low ejection fraction for gall bladder and usually means chronic gall bladder disease or dyskinesia. Should consult your physician for educated decision. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No.: There are typically 2 ways to use the results of a hida scan. If the gallbladder doesn't appear, then that is consistent with disease (called cholecystitis). If the functioning of the gallbladder is poor with a ejection fraction less than 30%, it is called dyskinesia and may be a cause for problems. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Gallstone etiology: In the dyerentiation of gallstone from non- gallstone pancreatitis, hida scanning can be helpful by identifying gall bladder duct obstruction associated with pancreatitis and is sometimes better than liver function profile and clinical picture. ...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
Gall bladder test: The patient is injected intravenously with tc99m hida (radiotracer).The patient lies on table with scaning camera over anterior abdomen. First part of study shows extracction of tracer from blood stream, visualization of gb and bowel. (30-40 min) patient receives slow injection of cck to stimulate gall bladder contraction. (60 min more imaging).Sometimes discomfort possibly related to gb disease. ...Read more
Not likely: Usually we say don't fast more than 24 hrs. So in general 20 hrs would probably be ok...We would not want someone to fast much longer then that. However, if someone has fasted longer than 24 hrs, a medicine can be given before the study...So that we don't have problems caused by this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Borderline: That means that after they stimulated your gallbladder, it ejected 29% of the radioactive tracer. Typically if it is less than 30-35% (depending on the lab), it indicates some type of gallbladder dysfunction as the etiology of a person's pain that may be helped by surgical intervention. However, since you are on the borderline, your physician will make a decision based on your clinical condition. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Not usually.: The hida scan is a nuclear medicine test that measures the uptake of some radiolabeled IV medicine. It is not commonly associated with causing pain. If your pain is worse then perhaps whatever the test was ordered for is getting worse. Do you know what the results of the test were? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
