Abstract

Quantitative hepatobiliary scintigraphy aids in the diagnosis of hepatic disease. Two scintigraphic parameters that have great value in discriminating between hepatocellular and biliary disease are hepatic extraction fraction (HEF), which is a measure of the hepatic extraction efficiency (HEE), and hepatic excretion rate. It is generally accepted that hepatic extraction fraction is normally 100%, but a review of the literature provided little information on the actual HEF of 99mTc-mebrofenin.
