Superficial Radiation Therapy

What is Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT)? 

Superficial Radiation Therapy delivers an exact, calibrated dose of radiation that only goes skin deep. SRT treats non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal and squamous cell carcinoma. SRT is a custom treatment option for patients who may not be good surgical candidates, by choice or otherwise. 

Different from traditional treatments, SRT can be used for lesions on the arms, legs, and trunk, but is uniquely suited for skin cancers of the head and neck regions as well as more intricate areas such as the eyelids, lips, ear and folds of the nose. 

SRT is one of the safest and most effective alternative skin cancer treatments available and unlike more powerful radiation devices, it carefully destroys the skin cancer cell all while preserving healthy tissue.
