Accuray Receives Outstanding Innovative Improvement Award for its CyberKnife System

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), the premier radiation oncology company, today announced that the company received the Outstanding Innovative Improvement Award for its CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System at the 3rd Annual Employer Healthcare Congress, which took place October 25 – 28, 2011 in Chicago.

The award was presented to Accuray in recognition of the fact that patients treated with the CyberKnife System are able to complete treatment in five days or less, compared to radiation therapy treatments, which typically require up to 40 treatment sessions. This significant reduction in the number of daily treatments helps patients get back to work faster, benefitting employees and employers alike. The CyberKnife System targets tumors anywhere in the body and delivers high doses of radiation with pinpoint accuracy. Unlike any other radiation delivery system, the CyberKnife System tracks and adjusts treatment delivery to compensate for tumor motion, including respiration.

"Treatment with the CyberKnife System is typically completed in five or fewer outpatient sessions, compared to the six weeks of daily treatments typical with conventional radiation. Fewer daily treatments allow the employee to get back to their normal schedule, including work, resulting in less stress for the employee and a more efficient workplace for the employer," said Jonathan Edelheit, president of the Employer Healthcare Congress. "Accuray has made a tremendous effort to ensure that employees are aware of the full range of options so they can make an informed treatment decision. We wanted to recognize Accuray's innovative technology, as well as its education efforts with this award."

The Employer Healthcare Congress is among the largest healthcare conferences in the United States. One of the major highlights of the conference is the Leadership Awards given for both excellence in Corporate Wellness and Voluntary Benefits. The Outstanding Innovative Improvement Award honors a company that not only has brought a healthy innovation to employees, but also a cutting-edge approach to changing the way we deal with chronic illness and critical care, all while helping employers reduce healthcare costs.

"Accuray is honored to receive this award from the Employer Healthcare Congress recognizing the advantages that the CyberKnife System offers not only to employees, but employers as well," said Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Accuray. "This award reaffirms our commitment to developing personalized, leading-edge treatment solutions that help cancer patients live longer, better lives. This means not only treating their tumors, but also helping them return to their normal lives as soon as possible."
