California US Oncology Network Centers Adopt Xoft Electronic Brachytherapy System for Early-Stage Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer

January 2, 2018 — iCAD Inc. announced that its Xoft Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx) System is now available at two California-based centers from The US Oncology Network – Santa Clarita Radiation Therapy Center and Sherman Oaks Radiation Therapy Center. Local patients with non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), including individuals precluded from surgery or those seeking a non-invasive option, will now have access to a proven alternative.

“We are pleased to provide our community with the most advanced and targeted cancer care that meets the needs of each and every patient,” said May Lin Tao, M.D., medical director of Santa Clarita Radiation Therapy Center.

“Adding Xoft to our infrastructure expands our clinical tools, which help patients achieve similar low rates of recurrence with excellent cosmetic outcomes compared to Mohs surgery – all with virtually no downtime,” said Marc Botnick, M.D., medical director of Sherman Oaks Radiation Therapy Center.

The Xoft technology features a miniaturized, low-energy X-ray source that delivers a precise dose of targeted, isotope-free radiation therapy directly to the lesion, reducing the risk of damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The mobile system can be easily maneuvered from room to room, while minimal shielding requirements enable clinicians to deliver treatment in a standard exam room, offering a highly-efficient, flexible solution.

Appropriate candidates include NMSC patients with lesions in anatomically challenging locations such as the ears, nose, scalp, neck, shin, and elbows, as well as those with wound healing challenges, individuals taking anticoagulants, and patients with medical comorbidities that may prohibit them from surgery.

The Xoft System is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CE marked and licensed in a growing number of countries for the treatment of cancer anywhere in the body, including NMSC, early-stage breast cancer and gynecological cancers.
