Fox Chase Cancer Center Purchases CyberKnife System
Date:12/1/2008

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today that Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia has purchased a CyberKnife(R) Robotic Radiosurgery System. The CyberKnife System at Fox Chase will be the third to be installed in Pennsylvania, and will be housed in a new radiation facility currently under construction in Buckingham, Pa.

Established in 1904 in Philadelphia as the nation's first cancer hospital, Fox Chase is one of the leading cancer research and treatment centers in the United States. Fox Chase houses some of the most sophisticated technology for cancer surgery, radiation and diagnostic imaging.

The CyberKnife System will enable Fox Chase to expand its radiation offerings to patients who may not have been able to tolerate other treatments or have medically inoperable tumors. The CyberKnife System uses its real-time tracking capabilities to deliver with sub-millimeter precision high doses of radiation to tumors, even while they move with respiration. A non-invasive treatment, the CyberKnife System does not require the use of stereotactic frames or painful, uncomfortable respiratory gating techniques. The CyberKnife System also is the first and only robotic radiosurgery system for the treatment of tumors anywhere in the body.

"Fox Chase has a superior reputation for cancer treatment, particularly using radiation, and for its leadership in research to develop new methods for attacking the disease," said Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., president and CEO of Accuray Incorporated. "We are proud that Fox Chase has recognized the importance of having a dedicated stereotactic radiosurgery device and look forward to working with the Fox Chase research team to continue enhancing the CyberKnife System."
