Serial HIDA scanning has proven to be a valuable tool in the postoperative management of liver transplant patients. Previous reports have documented its efficacy in detecting biliary leakage, abscess, and rejection. We have also found HIDA scanning to be a sensitive method for detecting early hepatic infarction before ultrasonographic changes occur. Two cases are presented to demonstrate the characteristic findings seen with hepatic infarctions.
