	abstract = {Background: To optimize the performance of the hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HS) for suspected biliary atresia (BA) using a timesaving and semiquantitative method without a loss in diagnostic accuracy. 
Methods: A retrospective analysis of 185 patients with persistent jaundice who underwent surgery were included. According to the surgical evaluation and pathological diagnosis, patients were divided into a BA group (99 cases) and an infant hepatitis syndrome (IHS) group (86 cases). 99mTc-labeled diethylacetanilide- iminodiacetic acid (99mTc-EHIDA) HS was performed before surgery. The average intestinal radioactivity uptake value minus the background average of radioactivity uptake value at 6 h after label injection (abbreviated as 6-h I-B) was calculated and the difference in 6-h I-B between the two groups was evaluated. The difference in diagnostic efficacy between 6-h I-B and the conventional 24-h HS in BA was also evaluated.
Results: A significant difference in 6-h I-B between the two groups was found (t=−5.975, P},
