Anyone have one done? Im getting one tomorrow i am not allowed to eat or drink anything for 4 hrs prior to this. They said they inject you with a dye then have pictures taken of your gallbladder. She said its not a MRI .. So have any of u done one? What should I expect? The apt is 110 min long.

Are you haing a HIDA scan? Tha is a nuclear test and the dye they inject is nuclear. Make sure and ask about being around your kids, etc.
