Superficial radiation therapy (SRT) greatly reduces keloid recurrence rates and, for keratinocytic skin cancers, provides short-term cure rates similar to those in previous SRT research and of surgical options including Mohs surgery, Brian Berman, MD, PhD, told Dermatology Times®.Using ultrasound-based image guidance may improve nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) out- comes, added Berman, Professor Emeritus of […]
A new study on Superficial Radio Therapy (SRT) shows that a single dose can be used to treat recurrence of keloid scarring after surgical excision. This study was conducted on fifteen patients with 20 untreated keloids in various anatomic locations. The results proved successful outcomes of 90%+ . The full study is attached.
Recently, a study was conducted on the efficacy of the treatment of keloid scarring using Superficial Radio Therapy and was printed in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD) magazine. This study shows that when the surgical removal of keloids is followed by treatment with Superficial Radio Therapy, the chances of the keloid scarring […]
