Superficial Radiotheraphy Treatment

SRT 100 machine, Venice Florida

What is SRT?

Superficial Radiotherapy, a low-energy radiotherapy that penetrates only a short distance below the surface of the skin, is a highly effective, painless, and cosmetically attractive alternative to surgery for selected cancers and patients. The SRT-100 (Used by Adam S. Greenberg, M.D ) is the new and most advanced choice for superficial radiotherapy available today. The treatment is painless, and very similar to having an x-ray taken. It is a proven non-invasive procedure that has been used to treat non-melanoma skin cancer for over 50 years and is highly recognized and reimbursable.

Dermatology & Laser Institute of Southwest Florida, Venice, FL announced that they are the first in the Southwest Florida  to acquire the Sensus Healthcare SRT-100TM, a non-invasive skincancer treatment system. The SRT-100™ will provide the local patient community with the most effective, non-surgical, and pain free therapy to treat Non-Melanoma skin cancers. These include Basal and Squamous Cell skin cancers, which account for the vast majority of all skin cancers.

 " The national skin cancer foundation states that 40 – 50% of people over the age of 65 will develop a form of skin cancer.  With a growing number of patients experiencing non melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), the Dermatology & Laser Institute of Southwest Florida is focused on providing treatment solutions that treat cancer and maintain a great cosmetic outcome. “We are very proud to be the first dermatology practice in Southwest Florida to offer the SRT-100 which gives patients a safe, effective non-surgical approach to treating Non-Melanoma skin cancers” said Adam S. Greenberg, M.D. from the Dermatology & Laser Institute of Southwest Florida.

Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) is a low-energy radiotherapy that goes no deeper than the thickness of the skin.  The radiation targets abnormal cells by disrupting cell division; tumor cells divide more rapidly than normal cells making the tumor an easy target for radiation. Normal cells are able to repair themselves because they are not going through this rapid growth making this form of surface radiation highly effective in treating non melanoma skin cancers and a cosmetically attractive alternative to surgery in selected cancers and patient populations.

The SRT-100™ treats non-melanoma skin cancers found on the surface of the skin.  It can be used for lesions on the arms, legs, back and trunk, but is especially well-suited for skin cancers of the head and neck regions – the fold in the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth, and the lining of the ear – that would otherwise lead to a less than desirable cosmetic outcome. SRT is also a great treatment option for patients who are considered high risk for surgical procedures.

What to Expect:

  • The SRT procedure is non-surgical and does not require the use of anesthetics.
  • You will be required to attend multiple sessions, depending on your doctor’s recommendations.
  • The X-ray will be directed toward the lesion by placing an applicator cone over the targeted area.
  • Once the treatment begins, it will take approximately 90- seconds to deliver the therapy.
  • The treatment is painless, but you will notice skin redness by the end of the first week’s treatment.
  • Post treatment, the skin will form a protective scab.  The new, healthy skin will develop underneath it.

If a routine skin check turns up a cancerous spot, ask the doctors or staff at Dermatology & Laser Institute is SRT is a viable treatment in your case.
