Accuray Launches New Organization for CyberKnife® and TomoTherapy® System Users
Date:8/31/2011

both the CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems.

"I look forward to the opportunity to lead AERO," said Prof. Eric Lartigau. "A global forum like AERO will be critical as clinicians adopt and use new technologies to improve patient care and safety as well as develop new advances in radiation oncology."

The impetus for the formation of this new organization was the need to support a broader user base across both the TomoTherapy and CyberKnife platforms and the increasing demand to provide this support globally. These needs have outgrown the capacity of the two existing CyberKnife and TomoTherapy user support structures.  Accuray will no longer be providing financial support to the CyberKnife Society (CKS), which is an independent entity that was originally formed by Accuray in 2002. Members of CKS who meet the membership eligibility requirements of the new organization, will now have access free of charge to an expanded level of support globally through the Accuray Exchange in Radiation Oncology. In addition, the TomoExchange activities will become part of the new organization and will further be expanded over the next several weeks.  

"Accuray has always highlighted the importance of supporting clinical exchange of information and AERO is designed to meet the growing needs within the clinical and physicist communities," said Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Accuray. "With the acquisition of TomoTherapy, Accuray now has a broader responsibility and opportunity to bring clinicians across the entire field of radiation oncology together to advance levels of care available to patients worldwide. In addition, I would like to thank the leadership of the CyberKnife Society and TomoExchange for the work they have done in furthering this mission over the past several years."

Accuray is planning to partner with AERO to hold a global users meeting during the summer of 2012. For more information about AERO plea
