How It All Began

In 2016, our cofounder submitted a graduate thesis on the use of superficial radiation treatment as an alternative to Mohs surgery. Today, IG-SRT is being used at over 145 dermatology practices in the United States with extraordinary results.

Timeline

Marie Curie discovers radiation.

Wilhelm Röntgen discovers a new ray and calls it the X-ray.

Use of superficial radiotherapy to treat skin cancer begins to reach its peak. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that more that 50% of dermatology practices use superficial radiotherapy equipment (1974).

Dermatology residency programs begin offering Mohs surgical training. Government regulations make it more difficult to offer radiotherapy in a practice setting and shifts in reimbursement rates make it difficult for practices to justify the expense involved in offering radiotherapy.
