American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Annual Meeting to Include Presentation on the Effectiveness of Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) for Keloid Treatment
BOCA RATON, Fla., October 2, 2017 – Sensus Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ: SRTS), a medical device company specializing in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) and other skin conditions, such as keloids with Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT), announced today that the 2017 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Annual Meeting in Chicago will include a presentation on the effectiveness of Superficial Radiation Therapy for keloid treatment. On Oct. 5 at 5:30 to 7 p.m., ASDS will include a poster presentation on the low rate of keloid recurrence following SRT treatment.
“Recurrences after keloidectomy are very common, happening at excision sites in about 71 percent of cases. Because of how difficult they are to treat and this high rate of recurrence, keloids significantly impact a patient’s quality of life,” said Joe Sardano, CEO, Sensus Healthcare. “As SRT is highly effective, safe and non-invasive, it is vital that both patients and doctors learn more about this keloid treatment, which has proven to be life-changing for many patients throughout the country and world.”
Sensus Healthcare’s SRT-100TM delivers precise, calibrated, low-dose radiation that effectively destroys basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as the non-malignant tumor cells that cause keloids. SRT treatment is painless and doesn’t involve cutting, bleeding, stitching or anesthesia. The SRT-100 has been cleared by the USDA for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers and keloids.
The 2017 ASDS Annual Meeting is taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago on Oct. 5 through 8. For more information on Sensus Healthcare and the Company’s SRT technology, please visit www.sensushealthcare.com.
