Background

Nuclear Medicine studies are performed at the 55 Spindrift Drive office in Williamsville by technologists that are NMTCB and/or ARRT certified in Nuclear Medicine. Windsong Radiology Group has two GE Millennium MG dual head SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography) nuclear cameras.

In addition to routine nuclear imaging, we perform several specialized nuclear procedures. These include thyroid therapy for hyperthyroidism and Quadramet® therapy for pain management in patients with bone metastases, and radioimmunotherapy for treatment of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Windsong Radiology Group is also offering a new FDA approved treatment for prostate cancer. Xofigo® (Radium 223 dichloride) is a new therapy used to treat prostate cancer that is resistant to other medical and surgical treatments that seek to lower testosterone levels in patients whose disease has spread to the bones.

Somatostatin-type receptor binding peptide radiopharmaceuticals are approved for the detection of neuroendocrine tumors. Ostreoscan is utilized for the rapid detection and localization of neuroendocrine tumors, primary or metastatic, which are often missed by conventional imaging procedures.

ProstaScint® Imaging is one of the new offerings in nuclear medicine. The monoclonal antibody is used in the detection of recurrent prostate cancer with lymph node involvement. CT images of the pelvis are fused with the nuclear images to precisely pinpoint any areas that are suspicious for cancer.
