What are the Benefits of Superficial Radiation Therapy?

  • SRT often is a superior form of external beam radiation therapy in its ability to minimize normal tissue exposure to radiation.
  • SRT often provides a quicker, easier, cheaper and non- invasive alternative for superficial tumours, especially in geriatric patients where surgery is not always an option.
  • Makes SRT readily available for our more local clients, providing a more viable option for clients who often decide against radiotherapy due to distance considerations.
  • SRT offers excellent cosmetic results and is considerably less invasive than the traditional surgical approach. The procedure is painless and less expensive than traditional treatments.
  • SRT uses a low energy radiation beam (X-ray). This beam only penetrates the top surface layer of the skin, avoiding deep tissue damage which minimizes adjacent normal tissue damage, and scarring, particularly around the head and neck in people.
  • SRT offers excellent cosmetic results and is considerably less invasive than the traditional surgical approach. The procedure is painless and less expensive than traditional treatments.
