Superficial radiation therapy for non-melanoma skin cancer
This article was originally published in Start Up
Sensus Healthcare LLC has developed an alternative to Mohs surgery for non-melanoma skin cancers. Its SRT-100 is a mobile, low-energy radiotherapy system designed specifically for the cost-effective, noninvasive treatment of NMSCs. Unlike radiotherapy technologies used for treating other cancers, including linear accelerators and electron beam therapy, the radiation does not travel through the body and destroy healthy tissue.
