Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT)
A simplified skin cancer treatment
Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, P.C. is pleased to offer an alternative to surgical procedures for the treatment of specific types of non-melanoma skin cancer using a new cutting-edge technology, the SRT100. Using low energy radiotherapy, comparable to an X-ray, it is designed to treat non-melanoma skin cancers that are found on the surface of the skin. This method is proven to be safe and effective as well as virtually pain and scar free. The radiation is delivered completely to the surface of the skin, without affecting the underlying healthy tissue and cells. SRT is ideal for irradiating tumorous growths at depths of between 0.5mm and 5mm.
The entire procedure lasts only seconds for each treatment fraction, compared to surgeries and other procedures, which take hours and additional recovery time. Most insurances, including Medicare cover the treatment due to its record for safety, efficacy and low risks. Depending on your doctors recommendations several sessions may be required.
