A 45-year-old male with a history of trauma was referred to the department of nuclear medicine to identify site of a biliary leak, which could not be identified in ultrasound and exploratory laparotomy. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) was able to identify lacerations in the right lobe of the liver, but the extent of injury to the biliary pathways and vessels was unclear. 99mTc-HIDA scintigraphy with single-photon emission CT/CT was not only able to identify the site of leak but also the extent of infarcted area.
