A new technology company committed to providing a viable treatment option for millions of skin cancer sufferers unveiled a re-design of its signature system this week at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Conference. ASTRO is the largest radiation oncology society in the world, with more than 10,000 members.
Sensus Healthcare is now showing the newly redesigned SRT-100TM, which offers improved mobility features and a streamlined look to simplify the non-melanoma treatment process. The SRT-100 is powered with a standard electrical outlet and offers an easy automatic set-up procedure.
The SRT-100 design revisions do not affect the core system, which is cleared by the FDA, UL and has ISO/CE Mark certification. The Sensus Healthcare SRT-100 is the only system of its kind available in the U.S. to treat non-melanoma skin cancers, and is now in use worldwide.
The SRT-100 treats basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers, especially those requiring difficult or extensive surgery with sensitive areas in the head and neck regions – the fold in the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth, and the lining of the ear – that would otherwise lead to a less than desirable cosmetic outcome. The SRT-100 treatment procedure does not require the use of anesthetics or skin grafting.
“The Sensus Healthcare treatment option is in no way intended to replace Mohs surgery, which is the standard surgical treatment option for skin cancer patients and an absolute necessity in many cases,” Sensus Chief Executive Officer Joe Sardano said. “However, when surgery is not essential, Sensus offers a viable alternative, one that uses safe and effective low-energy radiotherapy to treat non-melanoma skin cancers. It is a non-invasive process for millions of skin cancer sufferers worldwide.”
“Many skin cancer patients may not even know that they have treatment options beyond surgery, which can lead to scarring and infection,” Sensus Healthcare Chief Operating Officer Kal Fishman added. “Part of the process is educating the public that there are other ways to treat certain types of skin cancer – particularly around the face and neck, where four in five skin cancer cases develop.”
Sensus Healthcare will also exhibit the SRT-100 at the 2011 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting in New Orleans on February 4-8.
