SkinCure provides a comprehensive model for the delivery of Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy (Image-Guided SRT), which is a skin cancer treatment that uses ultrasound images to help clinicians direct low levels of X-ray energy to targeted areas of the skin, killing cancer cells.
"As we travel the country and speak with individuals who've had Mohs surgery, many of whom required reconstructive surgery after the invasive procedure, one thing we hear consistently is that they simply didn't know they had treatment options, much less a surgery-free option," said Lisa Brandt, director of patient education and advocacy for GentleCure. "GentleCure.com brings a true engagement and empowerment experience to people with skin cancer and their families as they evaluate options that will effectively inform treatment decisions."
