Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Becomes First NHS Facility to Acquire a CyberKnife System
Date:2/15/2010

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today that Mount Vernon Cancer Centre in the United Kingdom has become the first National Health Service (NHS) hospital to acquire a CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System.

The NHS has grown to become the world's largest publicly funded health service. The system was born just over 60 years ago out of a long-held ideal that quality healthcare should be available to all, regardless of wealth – and that principle remains at its core. The NHS remains free at the point of use for anyone who is a resident in the United Kingdom – more than 60 million people – with only a few minor exceptions, and is funded centrally from national taxation.

"Patients have been very eager to see CyberKnife radiosurgery available through the National Health Service, so we are excited to soon be able to offer them this state-of-the-art form of cancer care," said  Dr. Peter Ostler, Consultant Clinical Oncologist and the Trust's Clinical Chair for Cancer Services. "The CyberKnife System will enable us to expand our radiation offerings to patients who may not have been able to tolerate other treatments or have medically or surgically inoperable tumors."

The CyberKnife System uses real-time tracking capabilities to deliver high-dose radiation to tumors with pin-point accuracy, including tumors that move with respiration. As a non-invasive treatment for cancerous and non-cancerous tumors, the CyberKnife System does not require the use of stabilizing frames or uncomfortable breath holding techniques,
