Tc99m mebrofenin

Last revised by Daniel J Bell on 15 Oct 2021

Tc99m-Mebrofenin: trimethyl bromo IDA, also known as TBIDA, or under the trade name Choletec, is a diagnostic radiopharmaceutical used in hepatobiliary imaging. It is one of the Tc99m IDA (iminodiacetic acid) analogs. It is taken up by hepatocytes through the same membrane transport mechanism as bilirubin and then promptly secreted into the bile (without conjugation). It is considered a useful tool in the assessment of liver function reserve (especially in those considered for liver resections).
