02 mcg/kg sincalide (a synthetic analog of cholecystokinin) infused over 15 to 60 minutes, followed by a 20-min wait before radiotracer injection, 42 would evacuate the bile from the GB and facilitate reentry of freshly radiolabeled bile into the refilling GB.
In the first variation, the patient is first pretreated with sincalide followed 15 minutes later by simultaneous injection of morphine and the radiotracer.
Adjunct pharmacological (non-radioactive) are agents commonly used alongside radiopharmaceuticals such as dipyridamole, adenosine, regadenoson, dobutamine (used for stress imaging), aminophylline (antidote used to reverse stress agents), and sincalide (used to empty gallbladder hepatobiliary imaging).
These include dose of sincalide (CCK) administered, duration of administration, and time at which GBEF is calculated.
In a study by Jadvar et al, (3) FDG PET scans were performed on normal subjects without intervention, with atropine to reduce peristalsis, and with sincalide (a cholecystokinetic) to promote peristalsis.
