Date:7/22/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today that Radiosurgery Center of Rhode Island, LLC, installed a CyberKnife(R) Robotic Radiosurgery System within Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, marking the first CyberKnife System in Rhode Island.

"This new technology will allow us to provide the most targeted treatment for our cancer patients," said David Wazer, M.D., medical director of the Radiosurgery Center of Rhode Island, LLC. "CyberKnife's non-invasive design provides maximum benefit for the patient through focused radiation while also providing a shorter radiation cycle and a more comfortable experience with fewer side effects that affect quality of life."

CyberKnife radiosurgery offers a non-invasive treatment for cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. By incorporating robotic mobility and the ability to image throughout the treatment, the CyberKnife System delivers high-doses of radiation to destroy tumors and minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Treatments are completed on an outpatient basis in one to five sessions and patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.

Radiosurgery Center of Rhode Island, LLC, is a partnership of Rhode Island Hospital and 21st Century Oncology. For more information on this center, please visit www.cyberkniferi.com

About the CyberKnife(R) Robotic Radiosurgery System

The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is the world's only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body non-invasively. Using continual image guidance technology and computer controlled robotic mobility, the CyberKnife System automatically tracks, detects and corrects for tumor and patient movement in real-time throughout the treatment. This enables the CyberKnife System to deliver high-dose radiation with pinpoint precision, which minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and eliminates the need for invasive head or body stabilization frames.
