Re: question about hida scan results
Hey Cat! I'm a Nuclear Med Tech, and I perform a quite a few HIDA scans, as a matter of fact, I'm doing one today w/out the CCK. There are several different reasons they would hold the CCK. One of them could be that they just wanted to check your bile ducts to see if they are emptying correctly, and wasn't interested in the EF % part of it. Another could be that you were on some sort of narcotic, i.e. morphine. Narcotics and CCK don't go well together, narcotics cause the sphincter of Oddi to close and back pressure to fill the GB, whereas CCK causes it to squeeze. So having those two working together wouldn't be such a hot idea.
just thought i'd throw my 2 cents in. : )
