BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensus Healthcare is pleased to announce that Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center has chosen the SRT-100™ advanced superficial radiotherapy platform (SRT) as the latest addition to its comprehensive radiotherapy solutions for cancer. Froedtert & The Medical College Cancer Center is the first cancer center in Wisconsin to offer this advanced, non-invasive radiotherapy solution to treat non-melanoma skin cancers.
The SRT-100™ technology is a compact, easily portable device that uses low-energy radiotherapy to concentrate the radiation dose on the skin surface, offering doctors an alternative to surgery for non-melanoma skin cancers.
"Our patient healing philosophy drives us to approach skin cancer in a multidisciplinary fashion – from diagnosis to therapy to cure. We approach each patient individually when treating their skin cancer by employing personally tailored protocols and treatment modalities to maximize clinical outcomes. The SRT-100™ expands our options of treatment modalities and augments our capabilities," said J. Frank Wilson, MD, director of adult cancer services for Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin and Chairman, Director Emeritus, Cancer Center, Bernard & Miriam Peck Family Professor of Radiation Oncology.
In addition, Sensus and Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin will enter into a collaborative research relationship through which they will pursue studying and discovering novel treatment methods for skin cancer.
