Hida Scan
While having a Hida Scan yesterday my small intestine did not show up and they had me to go eat then come back in 30 minutes.  I did - was on machine for approximately 5 minutes longer and that was it.  They did not run the "stuff" thru the IV.  I'm waiting to hear from my doctor - did not hear today.  Do you know what could be going on?  I feel fine.

Thanks!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

In HIDA scans the gall bladder gets filled in 5-10 mins and sometimes longer. The emptying usually happens within 2 hrs. That's what happens if the test is normal--if something is blocked then the progression stops flowing along--usually either the gall bladder never fills or it never empties in an abnormal scan. CCK HIDA or HIDA with ejection fraction (EF) is seen to check for gall bladder ejection.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
