3. How do patients typically feel during and after undergoing Image-Guided SRT?

Patients often report feeling comfortable during Image-Guided SRT sessions, as the procedure is surgery-free and painless. There may be a slight warmth or tingling sensation in the treated area during the session, but most patients tolerate it well. After treatment, patients can resume their normal activities immediately, without any interruption to their daily life and normal activities.

4. What are some common reasons patients choose Image-Guided SRT for their skin cancer treatment?

Patients choose Image-Guided SRT for various reasons, including its surgery-free nature, excellent track record of leaving no scarring, shorter treatment durations at just 10 to 15 minutes, and little to no side effects compared to surgical options. Additionally, Image-Guided SRT is often preferred by patients with medical comorbidities or those who prefer a less invasive treatment approach.

5. Are there any patient success stories that highlight the effectiveness of Image-Guided SRT in treating skin cancer?

Yes, many patients have experienced successful outcomes with Image-Guided SRT.
