external radiation therapy) down to five days. As a result, tens of thousands of patients will have greater access to therapy that is delivered more easily and conveniently. This may accelerate patient choice of breast sparing lumpectomy surgery with adjuvant radiation therapy over the alternative of a full mastectomy.

The American Medical Association (AMA) Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) Editorial Panel recently approved a CPT Code for the use of electronic brachytherapy. Effective July 2007, the CPT code for electronic brachytherapy is included in the AMA CPT 2008 codebook. Additionally, the Category III CPT Code 0182T: high dose rate electronic brachytherapy, per fraction, has been assigned a New Technology Ambulatory Payment Classification (APC). The APC payment applies to the outpatient hospital and ambulatory surgical center settings and includes the high dose rate electronic brachytherapy radiation treatment and the cost of the X-ray source.

About Xoft, Inc.

Xoft is developing leading-edge new technologies for the practice of radiation oncology through Electronic Brachytherapy, which utilizes proprietary miniaturized x-ray tube technology. The Axxent(R) Electronic Brachytherapy System, Xoft's first treatment system, is currently being used in Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) for the treatment of early-stage breast cancer. This solution provides a therapeutic dose of intracavitary radiation directly to the region at risk without the complex handling and resource logistics necessary when performing brachytherapy using radioactive isotopes.
