Enhanced Techniques to Increase the Utility of Radioiodine Imaging in Patients with Differentiated Thyroid Cancer – Dr. Douglas Van Nostrand, MD

A conversation with your regulator.  Let’s talk.  – Karen Stone & Dacia Richmond

Enhanced Techniques to Increase the Utility of Radioiodine Imaging in Patients with Differentiated Thyroid Cancer

SNMMI credit reference No.: CEC04841 CA Scope: 1.0 (1.00 I)

Douglas Van Nostrand, MD, is director of Nuclear Medicine at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, where he sees patients.

He has special expertise in diagnosing, scanning and treating thyroid cancer patients. Patients come to this facility from all over the world. During any week, he and his staff see more patients with thyroid cancer than in any hospital in the U.S. which results in higher quality images and more precise treatments.

He believes that “a better-educated patient will have a better outcome.” Toward that goal, he is careful to educate patients about thyroid cancer.

Dr. Van Nostrand and his staff are very aggressive in minimizing side effects of radioiodine treatments, with multiple measures in place, giving every patient better quality of life.

When not seeing patients or working on a book or research paper on thyroid cancer-Dr. Van Nostrand enjoys sailing and fishing on the Chesapeake Bay or at Cape Hatteras.
