First Skin Cancer Patients Treated With Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx) At University of Wisconsin Riverview Cancer Center
Date:7/23/2009

roduce electronic brachytherapy as a treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer," said Dr. Welsh. "By using the Xoft skin applicator, which just became available in June, we shorten the course of treatment and precisely conform the radiation dose to the cancerous cells to preserve healthy surrounding tissue. This is safer both for patients and for radiation therapy staff who are able to remain in the room to monitor and reassure patients during the treatments."

Treatment options for non-melanoma skin cancer include several types of surgery, topical treatments and radiation therapy. The location and extent of the cancer impacts which treatment option is best for each patient. Whether in combination with surgery or as a stand alone treatment, electronic brachytherapy enables clinicians to administer radiation therapy without the use of a radioactive isotope and in clinical settings where a shielded vault is not needed.

Available for treatment of early stage breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and skin cancer, the Axxent eBx System is also FDA cleared for use in the treatment of surface cancers or conditions where radiation therapy is indicated, including IORT (intraoperative radiation therapy). As a platform technology, the Axxent System is designed to deliver non-radioactive therapy directly to cancer sites with minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Utilizing a proprietary miniaturized X-ray source and robotic controller, treatment can be performed in minimally shielded therapeutic settings allowing the radiation oncologist and other medical personnel to be present during treatment delivery and minimizing patient anxiety.
