This abstract does not elaborate what was outcome of the study? Is MIOBi better than DISIDA or vice versa?

MIBI is better than DISIDA in a very particular circumstance - to rule out biliary atresia. If there is activity in gut not seen on DISIDA but seen on MIBI then atresia is ruled out. However it is not a good test to diagnose atresia per se. The results (2 positives in 4 cases where MIBI showed no activity in gut - atresia patients)

MIBI may be better than DISIDA but as our group did experiment and saw MIBI coming in gut at 5 minutes and sometime even before that how can we rule out that MIBI is not excreted in the gut instead of coming through billary pathways?

study the pharmacology of MIBI - it is "proven" that it is NOT excreted in the gut on animal models - unless you can prove otherwise. Yes MIBI has much faster dynamics than DISIDA and appears in the gut early - which goes in favour of it. We are NOT imaging the hepatobiliary system or gut - the MAIN AIM of the study is to RULE OUT biliary atresia - so if you see MIBI in the gut then the atresia is ruled out and you stop the study .. if you dont see MIBI in the gut even at delayed 24 hour images - then report "high likelihood" - it is NOT diagnostic of atresia Keep this in mind
