Date:11/8/2012

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), the premier radiation oncology company, announced today that studies presented at the 54th Annual American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Meeting in Boston, October 28-31, 2012 continue to demonstrate the unique strengths of the CyberKnife® and TomoTherapy® Systems. Podium and poster presentations on a variety of indications including prostate, lung, liver, breast and head and neck, showcased Accuray's position as a leader in radiation oncology.

ASTRO 2012 TomoTherapy Clinical and Technical Study Highlights

TomoTherapy researchers demonstrated the benefits of and the ability to create high-quality treatment plans that maximally spare nearby healthy tissues, for simple-to-complex targets throughout the body. Also highlighted was the capability to deliver the treatment plans accurately and with guidance from fully integrated daily 3D megavoltage computed tomography (MVCT), reinforcing the flexibility of the TomoTherapy System to treat a wide array of radiotherapy needs.

TomoTherapy researchers continue to deliver highly conformal treatment plans to challenging targets. For example, Joseph Kim, M.D. and colleagues from the City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, Calif., presented findings on the treatment of 91 leukemia patients with normal-tissue-sparing total marrow/lymph irradiation (TMLI), an alternative to very toxic total body irradiation (TBI). TMLI delivered by the TomoTherapy System enabled far less tissue to be treated as compared to TBI while still maintaining the same levels of efficacy. Several presentations also demonstrated the flexibility of the TomoTherapy System for treating a variety of lung cancers.  Specifically, a study presented by Lane Rosen, M.D. and colleagues from Willis-Knighton C
