Radionuclide Scanning

Radionuclide scanning has been virtually replaced by ultrasonography for emergency department patients with right upper quadrant pain. Technectium-99m-labeled iminodiacetic acid (IDA) is injected intravenously, is taken up by hepatocytes, is secreted into the bile canaliculi, and then flows into the small bowel.
