In addition to diagnosing acute cholecystitis, hepatobiliary imaging offers a noninvasive, physiologic, highly sensitive, and apparently underutilized technique for the evaluation of biliary leaks. As this case report illustrates, radionuclide imaging can play an important role in the diagnosis and follow-up of postcholecystectomy biliary leaks, particularly those treated by percutaneous catheter drainage.
