FYI: A HIDA scan can reveal gallbladder problems even when ultrasound says all is normal. HIDA scan shows how well gallbladder is working. Failure to visualize gallbladder 60 to 120 minutes after injection of the radionuclide dye is consistent with acute cholecystitis. Delayed flling of the gallbladder is consistent with chronic cholecystitis. Your gallbladder function can be numerically determined by calculating the capability of the gallbladder to eject its contents. An ejection fraction below 35% indicates primary gallbladder disease. *I had a normal ultrasound but on HIDA scan had delayed filling of the gallbladder and ejection fraction of only 8%. I underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy and feel 100% better now.* Hope this information is useful.
