Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT)

Painless, Non-Invasive & Effective

Sometimes the cutting-edge of skin cancer treatment means NO cutting at all. Superficial Radiation Therapy (also known as Superficial Radiotherapy, and SRT), is a proven, non-surgical method of treating non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, virtually any place on your body.

SRT is not like the radiation used to treat other cancers. It preserves your surrounding healthy tissue while effectively treating the malignant (cancerous) cells, painlessly penetrating only about 5mm below your skin’s surface – virtually the thickness of your skin.

Is SRT Right for You?

For some patients with non-melanoma skin cancers, this advanced radiotherapy treatment has several advantages over surgical procedures, and:

  • Is safe & effective
  • Eliminates the discomfort that can follow surgery
  • Requires short treatment sessions
  • Results in minimal to no scarring
  • Has virtually no risk of nerve damage
  • Requires no anesthesia
  • Reduces the risk of post-procedure infections
  • Has a quick recovery time
  • Requires no post-reconstructive surgery
  • Allows you to enjoy your regular activities such as showering, playing golf and tennis, etc.

Your Daystarskin and Cancer center physician will discuss which advanced treatment option is most appropriate for you. Other options include Mohs micrographic surgery.

Sensus RT

PRECISE, PAINFREE, NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT ONLY TAKES MINUTES.

A NON-INVASIVE, SENSIBLE ALTERNATIVE CANCER TREATMENTS FOR THE SKIN.

Harnessing the remarkable healing power of Superficial Radiotherapy first used more than 50 years ago, Sensus Healthcare developed the SRT-100™—a state-of-the art system that is transforming the lives of people coping with non-melanoma skin cancer and unsightly keloid scars.

Every patient deserves a choice. Now they have a non-invasive, out-patient treatment option for non-melanoma skin cancer and keloids.

Sensus

As a provider who understands the serious risks, complications and side effects that can accompany the surgical intervention of skin cancer, we offer patients with alternative cancer treatments— specifically, a non-surgical solution for basal cell carcinoma treatment and squamous cell carcinoma treatment.

We are honored to offer the SRT-100™. Inspired by the tried-and-true Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) systems that were once the proven gold standard among dermatologists and radiation oncologists, our state-of-the-art system is ideal for basal cell carcinoma treatment and squamous cell carcinoma treatment.

The SRT-100 delivers a precise and calibrated dose of energy that penetrates only five millimeters below the skin’s surface—making it one of the safest and most effective alternative cancer treatments available. Unlike more powerful radiation devices, the SRT- 100™ carefully destroys malignant skin cancer cells while preserving healthy tissue.

By delivering a precise, calibrated dose of Superficial Radiotherapy that only goes skin deep, patients can be safely treated right in their physician’s office. Each treatment takes only a few minutes and is virtually painless.

Low-dose radiation effectively destroys basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as the non-malignant tumor cells that cause keloids. Best of all, it doesn’t involve cutting, bleeding or stitching. With the SRT-100™, there is no need for anesthesia, no risk of infection or scarring, no need for reconstructive plastic surgery. Patients heal quickly and don’t have downtime or lifestyle restrictions following treatment.
