Abstract

Objective: To compare hepatobiliary phase of gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance (HMR) and hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) for evaluation of cystic duct patency and gallbladder contractility in patients suspected of having gallbladder dyskinesia. Materials and methods: Eighteen patients underwent HMR and HBS. Cystic duct patency and gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) were compared to determine a significant difference between HMR and HBS. Results: HMR and HBS had 15 concordant and 3 discordant results for cystic duct patency. GBEF in eight patients showed no significant difference between both modalities. Conclusion: HMR may be an alternative to HBS for the functional evaluation of cystic duct patency and GBEF.
