Date:7/26/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today the launch of the CyberKnife Access((TM)) Remote Service product, a real-time customer service and support offering for the CyberKnife((R)) Robotic Radiosurgery System. This and other Accuray technologies will be highlighted during the 51st Annual Meeting of The American Association of Physicists in Medicine, July 26-30, 2009 in Anaheim, Calif.

CyberKnife Access utilizes the Axeda((R) )ServiceLink technology to provide a remote service solution for the devices that make up CyberKnife Systems at customer sites.

"It's reassuring to know that when you have a patient coming in for treatment and a service need arises, a lifeline exists so you can get their treatment going without delay."
