Medical Centers Worldwide Adopt Both Accuray's CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems
Date:12/19/2011

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), the premier radiation oncology company, announced today that 23 leading medical centers globally have installed both a CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System  and a TomoTherapy® System enabling the delivery of personalized treatment for the full spectrum of radiation oncology patients. These centers include smaller community sites in rural areas, mid-sized regional hospitals and large academic centers, indicating that centers of all sizes are benefiting from having both CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems.

"We now have the ability to design treatments that fit the individual needs of all patients," said Sandra Vermuelen, M.D., executive medical director of the Swedish Radiosurgery Center in Seattle. "The CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems are designed to allow clinicians to create specialized treatments with the ability to facilitate a complete range of treatment techniques ranging from static 3D conformal and highly modulated intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), to stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). Through the use of daily image-guidance, a standard feature for TomoTherapy, and the CyberKnife System's ability to track, detect and automatically correct for tumor and patient movement, we can ensure the most accurate treatment delivery for all patients."

More than half the centers with both systems are in North America including St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, Centre hospitalier de l'Universite de Montreal (CHUM) and Swedish Medical Center in Seattle. Recent centers in other parts of the world that now have both Systems installed and treating patients include Tokyo's Metropolitan Center and Infectious Diseases Center Komagome Hospital and Italy's Istituto Europeo di On
