Martin Tejedor, MD PhD, Chairman of Aragon Radiation Oncology Multihospital Clinical Unit (UCMORA)“Traditionally, HDR intracavitary brachytherapy using Iridium 192 seeds has been used for patients with endometrial cancer, but the recent development of electronic brachytherapy based on a miniaturized X-ray source has important advantages over HDR. The ability to precisely target cancer cells while preserving surrounding healthy tissue has significantly improved patient outcomes. Our study found long-term advantages with Xoft eBx, providing the same benefits as traditional methods with a reduction in radiation toxicity to at-risk organs.”A.M. Nisar Syed, MD, Radiation Oncology, Todd Cancer Institute, MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center“Our ongoing research with the Xoft System for early-stage breast cancer corroborates the mounting long-term evidence supporting 50 kV IORT as a treatment option that is as effective as weeks of daily radiation fractions. Xoft IORT can spare patients who are candidates from the need to make multiple trips to the hospital for treatment, with the added benefit of fewer side effects and comparable recurrence rates. It not only offers added convenience for women, especially those living in remote areas who must travel great distances for radiation, it may be particularly comforting for women who want to minimize their potential risk of COVID-19 exposure.”Reyes Ibanez, MD, Miguel Servet University Hospital in Zaragoza“The use of Xoft IORT for multiple cancers, including early-stage breast cancer, gynecological cancers, and nonmelanoma skin cancers, is quickly gaining appreciation globally due to promising data and results substantiating its feasibility as well as real-life treatment experience. We have used the Xoft System for the treatment of multiple types of tumors at our facility, including breast, skin, gynecological, and now brain tumors. The precision and flexibility afforded by Xoft can spare patients from numerous trips to the hospital and has helped position our facility as a leader in cancer care by offering the versatility to treat a broad range of cancers.”“We’re very familiar with the Xoft eBx System, as our hospital has performed hundreds of treatments with the technology for breast and gynecological applications. As such, we are confident we will treat more metastasis in the future using IORT.”
Sidney P. Smith, MD, Mohs Surgeon, Chief Executive Officer, Georgia Skin and Cancer Clinic“We recently decided to adopt the Xoft System because it is a clinically proven treatment option for NMSC that offers patients the ability to complete a course of therapy in fewer treatments, compared to alternative treatments. While Mohs surgery certainly has a high cure rate, there are some patients for whom Xoft Skin eBx may be more suitable. For example, patients who are on blood thinners, or who have lesions in difficult-to-treat areas, such as the face, head, or neck. Patients with multiple NMSC lesions may also just reach a point of excision fatigue, and in these cases, they may prefer Xoft skin eBx, as it offers a painless, noninvasive approach to treatment, which yields excellent clinical and cosmetic results.”
