Technology in the fight against skin cancer
What is the Sensus SRT 100?
Sensus SRT-100 is a non-invasive treatment option for skin cancer, particularly for basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. It utilizes a type of radiation therapy called Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT), which delivers low-energy radiation through a superficial x-ray beam to target cancerous cells on the surface of the skin. The treatment has been found to be effective, safe, and painless, with minimal scarring and excellent cosmetic outcome. Sensus SRT-100 is suitable for patients of all ages and skin types, including those who are not eligible for surgery or other forms of cancer treatment due to medical or personal reasons. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and may require multiple sessions depending on the extent and severity of the skin cancer.

Is Superficial Radiation Therapy the Best Skin Cancer Treatment?
Superficial radiation therapy (SRT) is a non-invasive cancer treatment option that is becoming increasingly popular for treating non-melanoma skin cancers like basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. SRT uses low energy radiation to deliver a controlled dose of radiation directly to the cancerous cells on the skin’s surface, without affecting the surrounding healthy tissues and organs. This makes it a less invasive option compared to surgery, which can require incisions, sutures, and a longer recovery time. SRT treatment sessions are relatively short, usually lasting between a few minutes to half an hour. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment, making it ideal for people with busy schedules.
SRT also provides patients with excellent cosmetic outcomes with minimal scarring, which is a major advantage for skin cancers that are located on the face, neck, and other visible areas. Additionally, SRT is usually covered by most insurance plans, which makes it an affordable treatment option for patients who may not want to go through surgery. While SRT may not be suitable for all types of skin cancers, it is an option that patients can discuss with their dermatologist to determine if it is suitable for their particular case. Overall, the growing popularity of SRT underscores its efficacy as a non-invasive and cost-effective alternative to surgery for patients with non-melanoma skin cancers.
