What’s the difference between eBt and SRT?

The RADiant system has been designed to deliver both superficial radiotherapy and electronic brachytherapy (eBt) treatments.

Using different applicators, you can treat using eBt (skin source distance ⩽5cm) or superficial radiotherapy (skin source distance ⩾10cm).

Why are there two modalities?

The dual modaility system has been developed over the last 3 years with the user in mind. We know that increasing patient bases whilst ensuring the most of your system is important, so the RADiant system uses revolutionary new technology to give both superficial radiotherapy and electronic brachytherapy.

Enabling you to treat patients on either modaility ensures the best outcome possible for every patient.

What is the difference between RADiant and other radiation therapy machines?

RADiant has two advantages over most radiotherapy systems.

Firstly its unique delivery system ensures the safest low energy, high dose output which only penetrates the skin itself. With the perfect delivery, thanks to the unique halo ring, no surrounding tissues are harmed.

With the user in mind, the RADiant system also has a unique dual technique system, allowing you to treat with superficial radiotherapy, or electronic brachytherapy. This ensures the best outcome possible for every patient, while increasing your patient base.

Does the RADiant require extra consumables?

Unlike other radiotherapy systems, RADiant has been designed with the clinic in mind, so no consumables are required during the products life time.

What can I treat using the RADiant?

RADiant is perfect for treating a range of conditions including:

  • Non melanoma skin cancer
  • Basal cell carcinomas
  • Squamous cell carcinomas
  • Psoriasis
  • Keloids
  • What are the possible side effects?

    Any side effects from skin radiation therapy are usually limited to the area receiving therapy. These can include:

  • Skin irritation; ranging from redness to peeling and scabbing over
  • Changes in skin color
  • Hair loss in the area being treated
  • What are the cure rates associated with radiotherapy?

    Treatment with RADiant has highly effecient cure rates.

    Treatment for skin cancers using superficial radiotherapy is comparable to Mohs surgery, with over 95 percent effectiveness.

    Treatment of keloids, combined with a supitable surgical extraction, has a cure rate of over 94 percent.

    What software does the system use?

    RADiant used the award winning Xstrahl Medical software, Concerto.

    Concerto, has been designed to provide a comprehensive yet simple workflow for the creation of your patients treatment workload.

    X-ray therapy is utilised for a wide range of clinical conditions, each with its own unique patient prescription and treatment options. Concerto is the solution to this problem, providing a simple and easy method to creating and recalling patient treatment reports, which are automatically created following patient treatment.

    The software enables the ability to quickly create and recall treatment fields, and allows the linking of images to each treatment field, providing a clinical record of all delivered exposures. To allow greater record keeping, all details can be printed directly from within Concerto.

    Is there treatment planning software?

    The RADiant system has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible, so no treatment planning software is needed.

    What are the optional extra applicators?

    The RADiant sytem is supplied with 5 standard applicators, used for electronic brachytherapy treatments, in 1.5, 2, 3, 4 & 5 cm diameter 5 cm FSD open applicators, with halo ring. There are also three optional superficial radiotherapy treatment applicators, in 1.5, 3 & 5 cm diameter 10 cm FSD open applicators.

    Is the system time or MU based?

    The RADiant system has been designed to be as user friendly as possible, so the system is time based.

    What is the purpose of halo ring?

    RADiant’s unique illuminated halo ring guidance allows for optimal conformal treatment positioning, meaning an optimised workflow with repeatable safe treatment.

    What are the room shielding requirements?

    Room sheilding requirements may be different due to location. An engineer will come to assess the best method of sheilding for you.

    What does the system come with?

    RADiant comes as either a turnkey solution, or as a base system.

    What are the service packages?

    RADiant is committed to offering a service package suitable to you. Regardless of your requests, we’ll make a service package you can trust.

    What conditions can be treated with RADiant?

    RADiant is perfect for treating a range of conditions including:

  • Keloids
  • Non-melanoma skin cancer
  • Basal cell carcinomas
  • Squamous cell carcinomas
  • Psoriasis

    Speak to your clinician to see if RADiant is suitable for you.

  • What is the cure rate with RADiant?

    Treatment with RADiant has highly efficient cure rates.Treatment for skin cancers using superficial radiotherapy is comparable to Mohs surgery, with over 95 percent effectiveness.Treatment of Keloids, combined with a suitable surgical extraction, has a cure rate of over 94 percent.For more specific cure rates speak to your clinician.

    How long is a typical treatment?

    Treatment varies depending on condition and placement, however most treatments are a matter of minutes. This may be repeated on a series of days over a course of a week or month depending on your condition.

    What does a typical treatment involve?

    Typically, a treatment will involve you sitting or lying in a comfortable condition, the system is placed over the treatment area and turned on. After a few minutes you are free to leave.If you’re having Keloids treated, you will first need to schedule radiotherapy in, and then surgery. Once surgery is complete, and not healed, you will receive a course of radiotherapy directly over the wound.

    What impact will treatment have on my life?

    Unlike surgery, radiotherapy has a very low impact on day-to-day life. During treatment you can continue to live your life your way, and due to short treatment times, you don’t need to spend ages at your clinic.
