The Bad News:
You or a family member have just been diagnosed with skin cancer.
The Good News:
You now have more options to have that skin cancer removed.
Contour Dermatology is proud to announce we have acquired the Imaged-Guided SRT 100 Vision by SkinCure Oncology. This device offers a non-surgical option to treat non-melanoma skin cancer. It is a superficial radiotherapy treatment (SRT) that utilizes ultrasound imaging to view the area being treated.
Our new device is an option that does not require surgery or stitches. There may be times when Mohs micrographic surgery is recommended, and there may be times when SRT might be the best option, depending on the type of cancer, how it presents, the patient’s sensitivity to surgery, or recommendations based on the best cosmetic result. What can patients expect with SRT results? The results are similar to Mohs surgery. The SRT 100 has a 99.7% cure rate. Which treatment is best for you is something that you and your provider can discuss. The good news is, you now have more options, and both offer excellent healing results.
What is Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT)?
Superficial radiotherapy utilizes a low-energy therapy using X-ray radiation in the 50 to 100 kv range. This device can be utilized on most any part of the body, including the scalp, face, arms, legs, back, and more. The device Contour has added to the practice requires less radiation than electronic-beam radiotherapy to successfully treat a superficial lesion. According to published data, SRT has been shown to deliver higher overall cure rates for non-melanoma skin cancer than electron-beam radiotherapy.
Benefits of SRT include:
- 99.7% cure rate
- No cutting, no stitches, no recovery time
- Treats multiple lesions in the same session
- FDA cleared
- Recommended by National Comprehensive Cancer Network
