Question for those that had a HIDA and watched the screen
I had my HIDA with cck today. Mine was different than many I've read about. They put the first stuff in that made my g/b glow bright white after about 30 minutes. After one hour and 10 minutes, they added a small IV drip bag of the CCK and they told me it would automatically shut off after 30 minutes. At the end of the test, my g/b didn't appear to have any more of the glowing stuff that was added in the beginning but right under my g/b was a large "ball" of the glow. Beyond that, was even whitish coloring that followed into my intestines.
Due to the fact that it appeared that the stuff had left my g/b, would that have any indication of whether the g/b is emptying normal? I also never saw my g/b move or "contract" at all and I had originally thought that was something that most people were able to see with the HIDA?
For those that watched the screen, what did you see and was your cck injected in a similar fashion?
