Xstrahl Therapy is an innovative treatment that uses X-rays to treat certain cancers of the skin and bone.
Because the x-rays used are low-energy, this type of treatment is safer than other types of radiotherapy. Xstrahl Therapy is painless and each treatment only lasts between one and five minutes.
Treatment can be targeted at the specific areas that need it by using materials such as lead, which block radiation, to create a mask to cover areas of healthy tissue.
What is Xstrahl therapy used for?
It can be used to treat both malignant and benign conditions of the skin and bone.
Skin conditions that can be treated include:
- Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)
- Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
- Mycosis Fungoides (T cell lymphoma)
- Metastatic skin nodules
It can also be used to relieve pain caused by metastatic disease:
- Bone metastases of the ribs or breastbone
