Beacon Hospital in Dublin, Ireland has deployed the SRT-100 System, a superficial radiotherapy machine from Sensus Healthcare.

The system is designed to provide a non-invasive solution to treat non-melanoma skin cancer patients.

This device allows doctors to provide non-surgical superficial radiotherapy treatments for patients with non-melanoma skin cancers, such as squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. It can also be used in the management of keloid scars.

As per estimates by the Irish Cancer Society, non-melanoma skin cancer impacts over 12,000 people in the country per year.

Beacon Hospital lead radiation oncologist Siobhra O’Sullivan said: “We are delighted to announce expansion of our radiotherapy services at Beacon Hospital, Dublin, with the delivery of the Sensus SRT-100.

“At Beacon Hospital, our skin cancer services are provided by a multidisciplinary team of radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and medical oncologists, to provide patients we serve with the most advanced and proven treatments.”
