First CyberKnife in Belgium to be Installed at Leading University Hospital
Date:12/14/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today that the first CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System in Belgium will be installed at the University Hospital of Liege.

The University Hospital in Liege, a 1,000-bed hospital, is one of the largest hospitals in Euregio, a cross-country region of 18 million inhabitants.

"With a full range of cancer treatments, University Hospital of Liege is delivering on its promise to offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art cancer care to patients across Belgium," said Professor Philippe Coucke, Head of the Radiation Oncology Department, University Hospital of Liege. "Because of its accuracy and non-invasive nature, the CyberKnife System can offer an alternative to patients who may not be able to tolerate other cancer treatments or who have medically inoperable tumors."

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the total number of new cases of cancer in Europe has increased by approximately 300,000 since 2004. With an estimated 3.2 million new cases and 1.7 million deaths each year, cancer remains an important public health issue in Europe. The situation described by the Belgian Cancer Registry is similar, with 57,185 new cancer cases reported in 2005.

"We are extremely excited to see the benefits of whole body radiosurgery expand into Belgium," said Frederic Sottilini, General Manager, Accuray EIMEA (Europe, India, Middle East and Africa). "This purchase paves the way for greater patient access to CyberKnife radiosurgery, thereby providing patients an additional treatment option that can improve their quality of life."
