Hepatolite (disofenin) Disease Interactions
There is 1 disease interaction with Hepatolite (disofenin):
Technetium Tc 99M Disofenin/Mebrofenin (Includes Hepatolite) ↔ Gallbladder Nonvisualization
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility
Applies to: Pancreatitis, Liver Disease, Sepsis, Biliary Obstruction
Nonvisualization or delayed visualization of the gallbladder may occur in certain populations, including patients who have been fasting for a prolonged period or undergoing parenteral feeding; patients with chronic cholecystitis or pancreatitis; and patients with hepatocellular disease or juvenile hepatitis. Septic patients may show absent or delayed hepatobiliary clearance. Therefore, a positive finding does not, by itself, permit a differential diagnosis and should be considered in conjunction with the total clinical picture and results of other diagnostic modalities.

|Minor||Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.|
