Total Skin Radiation Therapy

Total skin radiation therapy, also known as total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT), is used to treat mycosis fungoides, the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. During the procedure, the skin surface is treated with low-energy electron beams from a linear accelerator. These electrons only penetrate the skin, sparing the body’s tissues and organs from radiation. Typically, the procedure is used in patients who are not responding to other treatments. It may be used in conjunction with other therapies. Patients may receive up to 12 daily treatments.
