I am so pleased that I chose SRT over reconstructive surgery. The treatment was very manageable. There was no “down time”. I continued my normal, daily schedule. The SRT was most successful as there is no evidence of treatment or basal cell on my nose now. I am so grateful SRT was an option.
We have been using Xstrahl radiotherapy systems for 4 years and have successfully treated over 230 patients with this technology. We currently use the Xstrahl 100 machine and we find the system beneficial for treating basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, as well as a wide range of other skin lesions and conditions. The Xstrahl system is easily transported between treatment rooms and has the added benefit of enabling us to effortlessly reconfigure our department layout.
The addition of an Xstrahl X-ray therapy system for treating superficial skin conditions such as non-melanoma skin cancer, will not only allow us to offer treatment to patient more effeciently, but also provide an enhanced patient experience. We are constantly striving to meet patient demand which is ever increasing and we are excited to have this option available to our patients.
Xstrahl radiotherapy systems help us to respond to a growing treatment demand, helping us to reduce surgical and hospitalisation costs. The team find the Xstrahl technology easy to use and helps them to deliver safe and effective radiotherapy to our patients.
Here at Valley View, we have been using the Xstrahl 150 model to treat a high proportion of our patients with skin cancers and keloids for over 3 years now. When we were deciding which superficial radiotherapy unit to purchase, we were attracted to the Xstrahl models because they offered higher energies compared to competitor units. We also liked detailed features of the machine such as the water-cooling system and the interlock option on the filter selection. We love using the Xstrahl radiotheraphy system to treat our patients because of its user-friendly technology and variety of energy levels available. The system is very reliable and we have had 100% up time.
