Skin Elasticity as a Measure of Radiation Fibrosis


Current means of measuring RT-induced fibrosis are subjective. We evaluated the DermaLab suction cup system to measure objectively skin deflection as a surrogate for fibrosis. Sixty-nine patients with E-STS were treated with limb-sparing surgery and 50-66 Grays (Gy) of RT. Using a "scleroderma" DermaLab Suction Cup, the skin stiffness was measured by two… (More)
