Date:4/11/2008

Renowned Clinic Invests in Extracranial Radiosurgery

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, today announced that the Hirslanden Clinic in Zurich, part of the renowned Hirslanden group of private hospitals, has purchased a CyberKnife System. This marks the first System sold in Switzerland, allowing patients greater access to the benefits of extracranial radiosurgery.

Since its beginning in the 1930s, the Hirslanden private hospital group has been a pioneer in the development of innovative treatment concepts. Hirslanden clinics continually adjust their medical and technical equipment according to current developments, as part of their contribution to improving the health and quality of life of their patients. The Hirslanden Clinic's purchase of a CyberKnife System is part of Hirslanden Hospital Group's further development of a stereotactic radiosurgery practice. The System will be utilized for both intracranial and extracranial treatments, particularly the non-invasive treatment of prostate cancer. Ideally the addition of the CyberKnife System will support the establishment of the Neurocenter Zurich, which will offer a full range of therapeutic options in neurological diseases.

"With the purchase of the CyberKnife, we can now offer the complete spectrum of a modern radiation-oncology program," said Dr. Christian von Briel, co-chairman of Hirslanden radiation-oncology "We are also very excited to start a scientific cooperation with the CyberKnife centre in Nice, France. We are confident that working with this academic hospital will be valuable for the development of our extracranial activity."
