NUCLEAR MEDICINE HEPATOBILIARY SCANREASON FOR EXAM:
Right upper quadrant pain.COMPARISONS:
CT of the abdomen dated 02/13/09 and ultrasound of the abdomen dated 02/13/09.
Radiopharmaceutical 6.9 mCi of Technetium-99m Choletec.FINDINGS:
Imaging obtained up to 30 minutes after the injection of radiopharmaceutical shows a normal hepatobiliary transfer time. There is normal accumulation within the gallbladder.
After the injection of 2.1 mcg of intravenous cholecystic _______, the gallbladder ejection fraction at 30 minutes was calculated to be 32% (normal is greater than 35%). The patient experienced 2/10 pain at 5 minutes after the injection of the radiopharmaceutical and the patient also complained of nausea.IMPRESSION:
1. Negative for acute cholecystitis or cystic duct obstruction.
