The Jupiter Hida Scan is an important scan for identifying ongoing and vaguely defined complaints from our patients of the upper abdomen. Dr. N. Henry Pevsner, who is a Life Member of the Florida Medical Association will be performing the test, or there is a chance a trained technician from his staff will do it. This type of Scan is a liver and gallbladder exam that indicates whether the liver is functioning well or not, and produces bile that empties the gall bladder correctly. After the patient eats a meal, or gets a stimulant injection in the arm, called cholecystokinin, the scan can evaluate if the gallbladder is contracting and emptying correctly. The injection tends to be more exact. It is important to identify all problems in advance so proper treatment can be started.
The Jupiter Hida Scan is a result of this kind of medical imaging, called a cholescintigram, but it is also commonly identified under other names like PIPIDA scan, DISIDA scan, or BrIDA scan, according to which radiotracer is used. Cholescintigraphy scanning, involves nuclear medicine methods to examine how well the gallbladder and biliary system are functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected in any vein that can easily be seen, and then it moves around the liver, moving through the bile ducts, and finally kept in the gallbladder until it goes into the duodenum. Having a doctor you fully trust, or a medical technician, is always important. Dr. Henry Pevsner is that person, he is a member of the Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade County Medical Associations, and the Florida Radiological Society in good standing. His business, Medical Diagnostic Scans can be fully trusted to providing you with excellent, reliable tests.
