Published in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, Consensus was Reached that SRT is Safe, and Effective in Treating SCC and BCC and Should be Considered as the First-Line Form of Radiation Treatment.
BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensus Healthcare, Inc. (SRTS), a medical device company specializing in the non-invasive treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) and keloid scars with Image-Guided Superficial Radiation Therapy (IGSRT), announced today the publication of consensus guidelines on the use of Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) for treating both NMSC and recurrent keloid scars in February 2019 issue of The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology.
Consensus was reached for guidelines on various aspects of SRT use, including appropriate tumor types; suitable anatomical areas; energy, fractions, and scheduling recommendations for SRT; safety factors; as well as treatment recommendations for keloid scars, based the literature and on both the opinions of the expert group and a survey of experienced users. The expert group that developed the guidelines has a combined 250 years of dermatology practice and 78 years of experience with SRT specifically, having treated more than 9,000 patients with SRT.
"With decades of clinical use and research, 1000+ doctors around the world use SRT as a highly effective, non-invasive treatment option for NMSC and keloid scars for their patients. It is vital that the medical community has clear, concise, published treatment guidelines based on a thorough review of all literature and expert opinion on SRT to date," said Mark S. Nestor, M.D., PH.D., Director, Center for Clinical and Cosmetic Research, Aventura FL and Voluntary Professor, the Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery and Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and the lead author of the guidelines. "Our goal in forming these guidelines is to fill an important knowledge gap regarding the use of SRT and demonstrate its overarching efficacy with various patient populations across the globe."
