CyberKnife Radiosurgery for Lung Cancer Sees Increased Interest and Continued Rapid Growth
Date:3/2/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today significant growth in CyberKnife lung cancer treatments in calendar year 2008. The number of lung cancer patients treated with CyberKnife radiosurgery in the United States grew 52 percent from calendar year 2007 to 2008 and 43 percent worldwide. Additionally the overall number of patients treated with CyberKnife radiosurgery grew to more than 60,000 patients - a 14 percent increase from calendar year 2007 to 2008, demonstrating the increasing awareness and continued rapid adoption of CyberKnife radiosurgery, with lung being the leading extracranial indication by utilization in calendar year 2008.

The increasing interest in CyberKnife radiosurgery for lung tumors was further validated at this year's Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Meeting in San Francisco. Recent publication of several clinical papers describing the benefits of the CyberKnife System's accurate delivery of high dose radiation to treat lung cancer has helped to raise the profile of the CyberKnife System, particularly amongst this group of physicians.

Discussions by leading thoracic surgeons, such as James Luketich, M.D., Chief of The Heart, Lung and Esophageal Surgery Institute at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center highlighted the efficacy and resulting increased demand for CyberKnife treatments for lung cancer patients, while also emphasizing the need for thoracic surgeons to increase their awareness and involvement with CyberKnife radiosurgery. Dr. Luketich's points were further underscored by Richard Whyte, M.D., Professor of Thoracic Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine. During his STS University session, Dr. Whyte reviewed the importance of the CyberKnife System
