At Clear Skin Cancer Center – we administer the finest non-melanoma skin cancer treatment by a board certified radiation oncologist who specializes in electronic brachytherapy treatment of skin cancer.
Unlike other brachytherapy or radiation therapy, Clear eBx uses a non-radioactive, electronic, low dose minaturized x-ray source which only emits energy when the the power is turned on. Furthermore, this tiny x-ray source is contained within a proprietary metal skin applicator which directly interfaces with the targeted skin tissue during treatment, allowing for very precise targeted treatment of the skin cancer and thus, sparing of the adjacent normal tissues.
Deeper non-skin tissues are not harmed because the energy effects are generally focused no deeper than 1/4″ below the skin surface. The Clear electronic brachytherapy radiation treatment regimen consists of multiple treatment sessions that vary based on the tumor size, depth, location, and other factors. Two painless, quick and easy treatments per week for four weeks is usual.
Prior to your first treatment, a medical physicist together with the radiation oncologist develop your customized electronic brachytherapy treatment plan. Additionally, custom shielding may be created and used to optimize the delivery of radiation to the skin cancer and protect the adjacent normal tissue.
In ten minutes or less, your treatment is done and the x-ray source is turned off and any shielding is removed. Since our electronic brachytherapy is a superficial x-ray derived skin treatment localized to the skin cancer, there is no radiation exposure to other areas of your body. After your treatment, you may drive yourself home and immediately return to your normal activities.
