Superficial Radiotherapy SRT-100 for
Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer

Palm Beach Dermatology Group

Superficial radiotherapy (SRT) is a low-energy radiotherapy that penetrates no deeper than the thickness of the skin. It is a proven non-invasive procedure that has been used to treat non-melanoma skin cancer (squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma) for over 50 years and is highly recognized and reimbursable by most insurance companies.

Because the superficial X-ray concentrates a radiation dose on the skin’s surface, the treatment has several advantages over surgical procedures, including:

  • Virtually painless
  • Very short procedure time
  • Heightened safety
  • No anesthesia requirement
  • Minimal to no scarring
  • Virtually no post-surgical infections
  • Lesser chance for recurrence
  • Faster healing process
  • Virtually no need for reconstruction after procedure
