HIDA with CCK

What is HIDA with CCK?

A Hida Scan, also known as a Hepatobiliary Scan, is a type of Nuclear Medicine testing that uses a radioactive material (radiotracer) to determine the structure of the liver, gallbladder and biliary ducts. By adding CCK (Cholecystokinin)—a hormone typically released by the body after a meal—it forces the gallbladder to contract, allowing us to see how well it is functioning.
