In brief: Abnormal gb & ducts

Acalculous cholecystitis is ineffective/incomplete contraction of the gallbladder in response to cck, as seen on hida scan.
Cholecystectomy may help. Sphincter of oddi dysfunction, or biliary dyskinesia, is defined by bile duct manometry showing sphincter spasm, altered propagation/increased phasic contraction frequency (tachyoddia), paradoxical contraction response to cck. Sphicterotomy may help.
