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.
Marcia is 74 years old and a great-grandmother from Bell Buckle, Tennessee. Last year, she noticed bleeding from a tiny spot on the tip of her nose. At her next appointment, she had her dermatologist, Dr. John Binhlam, take a closer look. He did a biopsy on the spot, and she was diagnosed with an invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the nasal tip. After a discussion of Mohs micrographic surgery versus nonsurgical superficial radiation therapy (SRT), Marcia chose to have the latter treatment done using the RADiant system at his office, Advanced Skin & Laser Center in Brentwood, Tennessee.
