SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today that 28 CyberKnife-focused abstracts have been accepted as part of the 51st Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), taking place November 1 - 5 in Chicago, Illinois. This represents a 27 percent increase in CyberKnife abstracts over last year's Annual Meeting.

The accepted abstracts, which will be presented as posters or oral presentations, focus on the use of the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System to treat tumors located throughout the body including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas, head and neck.

"The depth and breadth of research presented at this year's ASTRO meeting is a testament to the growing clinical acceptance of the CyberKnife System and the important role it is playing in the treatment of cancer," said Euan Thomson, Ph.D., president and CEO of Accuray.
