Is A Lower Ejection Fraction In A HIDA Scan Of The Gallbladder Curable?

I ve been having gallbladder problems for 7 year s now. Testing in 2011, 2014 & 2018. All tests says it s fine. I had the HIDA scan on Wednesday & my doctor called me today and said that I had 93% ejection fraction. I know that it s my gallbladder. Is 93% normal?

Hi,

HIDA scans are basically to look the how much bile your gallbladder is putting out and the numbers look fine. HIDA scans look at biliary dyskinesia and potentially lots of informed discussions need to be made with your doctor before even coming to this diagnosis, which doesn't mean that you have it. Kindly seek advise with gastroenterology.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Anant Paul, General Surgeon
