Overview

The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.

 

The University of Washington/Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Molecular Imaging/Nuclear Medicine section is based at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, South Lake Union Campus. This rapidly growing service provides nuclear medicine diagnostic and therapy services and offers clinical trial opportunities for SCCA patients in an outpatient setting. The clinical PET/CT and general nuclear medicine imaging services have experienced steady growth for the past 5 years. Under the leadership of the Director of Molecular Imaging at SCCA, Dr. Delphine Chen, the clinical therapy practice has more than doubled in volume, with a rapidly growing Lu-177 dotatate service, recent opening of the I-131 thyroid cancer service, and impending opening of the PSMA-targeted therapy service. Consultation services for both patients and providers have also expanded significantly, leading to highly collaborative, multidisciplinary participation of nuclear medicine in the oncology practice at SCCA. Multiple diagnostic and therapy radiopharmaceutical clinical trials are also run or supported by the SCCA nuclear medicine service. Finally, with the impending expansion of the SCCA, the addition of a PET/MR and additional PET/CT and SPECT/CT cameras will further increase clinical volumes and provide ample opportunities for clinical and translational research. As a result of this rapid growth, the SCCA seeks to add an APP to support this growing service.
