Abstract Full Text
JAMA Dermatol. 2015;151(7):699-700. doi:10.1001/jamadermatol.2015.0385

The authors of this Viewpoint caution against expanded use of electronic surface brachytherapy for skin cancer because of the paucity of safety and efficacy data with long enough follow-up—especially when effective, safe, and lower-cost treatments already exist for most tumors.
