CyberKnife Radiosurgery for Early-Stage Breast Cancer
Date:10/31/2010

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated, (Nasdaq:  ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today studies underway at two leading academic institutions using CyberKnife radiosurgery in breast cancer treatment. These two studies, from the University of Texas Southwestern and Fox Chase Cancer Center, will be presented at the 52nd Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) in San Diego from October 31 to November 4.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women and the second leading cause of cancer death. Typically, women with early stage, localized breast cancer are treated with a lumpectomy, also known as breast conserving surgery, followed by radiation to ensure any remaining microscopic cancer cells are treated. It has been shown that women receiving radiation following surgery have more than a 15 percent reduction in recurrence rates as compared to women who did not receive radiation after their tumors were surgically removed(1).

Initially clinicians delivered radiation to the whole breast following surgery, but over the last decade a more limited radiation approach has gained interest among clinicians and patients. This approach, called partial breast irradiation, can be as effective as whole breast irradiation and is less likely to damage to the heart, lungs, and skin, leading to improved cosmetic outcomes and reduced toxicities.(2)

Partial breast irradiation can be delivered in a number of ways, including invasive options, such as MammoSite, which involves surgical implantation of a catheter in the breast to deliver interstitial brachytherapy, or non-invasive radiation therapy options such as 3D conformal or intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).

Each technique has its advantages and drawbacks: For example, invasive brachytherapy can cause infection, hematoma or abscess(3-4). While n
