Total Skin Irradiation

Upstate Medical University is proud to be able to offer the Central New York Community the latest cancer fighting technology.

Radiation therapy to the entire skin surface is available at University Hospital. This type of treatment is offered at only a small number of clinical sites in the United States and administered for a select population of patients.

This form of radiation does not penetrate deeply beyond the skin's surface. Treatments are given two times per week over the course of several weeks and last approximately 30 minutes per session.
