Sensus Healthcare Introduces Superficial Radiotherapy As A Mobile Unit For Immobile Patients



Sensus Healthcare is revolutionizing skin cancer treatment with the SRT-100™, a Superficial Radiotherapy machine that provides a non-surgical option for treatment of non-melanoma cancer. There is now a mobile unit of the SRT-100™ available, allowing you to forget the hospital and waiting rooms. Superficial Radiotherapy, a highly effective option in the treatment of basal and squamous cell cancer, may now be available at your doctor’s office or even your front door.

If you are living in a nursing home or in an assisted living program and may not easily be able to receive treatment, the Superficial Radiotherapy mobile unit gives you a new option. If you are immobile, Superficial Radiotherapy can be brought directly to you by a van, allowing you to avoid a dermatologist or hospital visit. The van has a lift that brings you up into the van for treatment and back down once you are finished.

Superficial Radiotherapy is a tissue-preserving alternative to Mohs surgery. The cure rate of Superficial Radiotherapy is about 93%, coming very close to that of Mohs surgery. Each treatment is fractionated and more than one treatment session must take place, but each session is completed in a time-efficient manner. There is no down time after treatment. Patients typically need three treatments over a period of a month and twelve treatments total.

The SRT-100™ can treat lesions on the arms, legs, back and trunk, and it is especially efficient in treating skin cancers on the head and neck. It can deliver a controlled dose of Superficial Radiotherapy to delicate areas that are hard to treat, such as those along the fold of the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth and lining of the ear. Superficial Radiotherapy is also highly effective in the treatment of keloid scars.

If you have been diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer or are experiencing keloid scars, the SRT-100™ is a great option for treatment that will cure you without the cutting, pain, stitching, scarring, infection or reconstructive plastic surgery. If you are interested in being treated with an SRT-100™ for your skin cancer or keloid scars, contact us to find the nearest SRT physician to you.
