Image Guided Superficial Radiotherapy [IG-SRT] is a safe and effective alternative to surgery for Squamous and Basel cell carcinomas. IG-SRT utilizes a small, portable device that delivers very low energy just below the surface of the skin. It treats only non-melanoma skin cancers and because it uses low energy radiotherapy, skin reactions are typically mild and very small — less than what is required for a chest X-Ray.
IG-SRT also has the added value of better cosmetic outcomes, no requirement for halting blood thinners, better outcomes for lower extremities, and little to no disruption in daily activities.
