Treatment of light skin cancer

The new nuclear medicine method R-SCT (Rhenium Skin Cancer Therapy) for the treatment of light skin cancer uses radioactive Rhenium 188. Cancer cells that are no more than three millimetres deep can thus be treated in 98 per cent of the cases in a single, painless, and non-invasive procedure with aesthetic results. DSD Pharma is the first and only distributor in Austria to supply the innovative R-SCT to nuclear medicine departments.
