elerators such as Varian's TrueBeam platform.  "The confidence gained from this system supports accelerated, hypofractionated treatments of the prostate where dose escalation requires confirmation of target location at all times," said Guertin.  "We believe this technology could support a change in clinical practice to broader acceptance and use of radiosurgery for treating prostate cancer."

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also has granted Calypso investigational device exemption (IDE) approval for its clinical study evaluating real-time tracking of lung cancer tumors during radiation delivery. This study utilizes a proprietary transponder that includes an anchoring feature uniquely designed to lock into lung tissue to support very precise radiosurgery procedures.  "If cleared by regulatory authorities, we are optimistic that this will globally impact the ability to target challenging lung tumors with accuracy and precision required to advance clinical outcomes," said Guertin.  

"We are extremely gratified by the confidence and promise of this acquisition by Varian. It provides a tremendous opportunity to leverage our GPS for the Body technology as broadly as possible," said Edward Vertatschitsch, Ph.D., president and CEO of Calypso Medical. "Motion management is critical to accurately targeting the cancer so patients can experience the curative benefits of radiation therapy while protecting adjacent healthy tissue. We believe our real-time tracking capabilities will help to close the gap on this clinical challenge and I look forward to joining the Varian team to advance innovations in these areas."

"We are looking forward to having some of the world's technical thought leaders in tumor tracking from Calypso join with us so that we can work together to develop and deploy this technology for more disease sites."  Guertin added.

The Calypso business currently generates more than $15 million in annual rev
