The Xstrahl 150 delivers impressive cosmetic results for superficial skin cancers.
The Xstrahl 150 X-ray system has an adaptable energy range, delivering impressive cosmetic results for superficial skin cancers. The variable energy range of the Xstrahl 150 means that superficial lesions can be successfully treated; from basal cell carcinoma, keloid scars and dermatological conditions such as psoriasis to other benign plaques.
Thanks to its leading design, treatment using the Xstrahl 150 provides an all-round positive experience for every patient. The flexibility of the unit means that the treatment is less stressful from the outset and thanks to its unique design the treatment is pain-free, with no surgical scarring. The low energy means pinpoint accuracy, so healthy skin isn’t affected. The fast treatment means a large reduction in time and impact on the patient’s day-to-day life, whilst providing a highly effective treatment for superficial skin conditions.
The Xstrahl 150 can be floor or ceiling mounted, making it easy to install alongside other equipment and adaptable where space is restricted. The intuitive machine controls have been ergonomically designed to provide the operator with smooth, controlled movements at all times allowing the radiation therapist to easily position the unit and smooth adjustment and easy set up for each treatment field, ensuring patient comfort wherever the treatment site.
The unit’s small footprint enables installation in a compact space, and its mobility makes for better use of space within the treatment room. Its low energy and short exposure times means the treatment room requires less shielding compared to a high energy linear accelerator.
The range of movement in the treatment arm enables smooth adjustment and easy set up for each treatment field. Its flexibility makes it particularly suited for treating lesions that are difficult to access, such as the head and neck; and without compromising patient comfort.
The Xstrahl 150 X-ray system is ideal for treating superficial lesions and medium sized benign plaques including:
- Basal cell carcinoma
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Keloid scars
- Dermatological conditions including psoriasis
- Mycosis fungoides and other deeper benign plaques

Accurate application ensures that healthy skin isn’t affected, the treatment is pain-free, and speed of treatment means less impact on the patient’s day-to-day life. And with no surgical scarring, the cosmetic results are excellent.
The Xstrahl 150 is supplied with eight open-ended clinical applicators of 15 cm and 25 cm FSD.
Xstrahl is devoted to ensuring you have the best applicators for your needs, and so we offer bespoke applicator creation on request, additional standardized applicators, focal spot applicators, and our new range of oval applicators, designed to be used between the boundary of the lip and facial skin.
The applicators are interlocked in the head of the treatment machine, ensuring any exposure may only be delivered with the correct applicator attached. The applicators are manufactured from stainless steel and have clear Perspex® viewing ends, which allow the radiographers to accurately position the applicator to achieve skin apposition prior to treatment.
kV and mA Range – kV range is 10kV to 150kV. mA range is 2mA to 30mA. mA can be programmed to achieve required output (cGy/min).
Treatment Exposures – Treatment exposures are set in decimal minutes. Dual channel timer monitoring system.
Clinical Interface – Concerto software enables simple and easy clinical interfacing.
Physics Calibration Interface – Fisica software allows for configuration, calibration and maintenance.
Support System – Xstrahl 150 can be floor/wall or ceiling mounted.
Optional Planning Software – XBeam treatment planning software is available as an optional extra.
Optional 3rd Party Communication Software – XBridge 3rd party communication software is available as an optional extra.

Xstrahl 150 delivers impressive cosmetic results for superficial skin cancers. Take a look at Xstrahl 100, Xstrahl 200 and Xstrahl 300 for other fast and effective treatments.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
