Superficial and orthovoltage radiation therapy are used to treat many conditions with great results. See how Dr. Aurelia Klajer-Peres at Eiffelvet in France uses the Xstrahl system for both curative and palliative conditions.
Dr. Sean E. Mazloom, MD, FAAD, from ReJUVA Dermatology, Vein & Skin Cancer Center, Venice, FL has been using the RADiant system to treat both squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and basal cell carcinomas (BCC) in his practice. Depending on a number of factors specific to each patient, he has treated these conditions with superficial radiation therapy (SRT) and electronic brachytherapy (eBT). Below are two case studies that describe the treatment process and results.
Myrna has a history of multiple skin cancers that were treated with Mohs micrographic surgery. During the last year, Myrna was diagnosed twice with basal cell carcinomas (BCC). Her dermatologist, Dr. John Binhlam of Advanced Skin & Laser Center, in Brentwood, Tennessee recommended superficial radiation therapy (SRT) as an alternative to Mohs surgery based on several factors unique to her. Myrna had SRT treatment delivered with the RADiant system, right in Dr. Binhlam’s office.
