Widespread Acceptance and Use of Accuray's Technologies Continue to Grow
Date:11/25/2013

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY) announced today continued momentum in global adoption of its CyberKnife® and TomoTherapy® Systems. Accuray has expanded its installed base to more than 700 systems worldwide which have been used to treat more than half a million patients, further positioning the company as a leader in precise, innovative radiation oncology. To date, the CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems have been used in 40 countries to treat patients across the full spectrum of radiation oncology cases including prostate, lung, liver, breast and head and neck cancers.

"The CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems are widely recognized by the global oncology community as leading edge, innovative treatment solutions," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer of Accuray. "These installation and patient milestones reflect our Systems' continued and growing adoption across the world. Though we are proud of these achievements, there are many more patients that could benefit from the personalized, non-invasive treatment options our technologies provide. We will continue our commitment to maximizing patient access and coverage, while working toward a future where the fear, pain and suffering of cancer are a thing of the past."

"With the ability to image my patients every day I can create highly conformal treatment plans that are more specific to the tumor and can be delivered in fewer doses, thus allowing me to treat indications ranging from breast, liver, pancreatic and head and neck cancers," said Martin Keisch, M.D., president and medical director at Cancer Healthcare Associates in Miami, Florida. "We went live with our TomoTherapy System in December 2012. We have treated more than 200 patients and our system has not been down for more than one hour. The TomoTherapy System has redefined how I deliver radiation treatment."

Accuray's newest innovations are the CyberKnife® M6™ Series and the TomoTherapy® H™ Series Systems treatment solutions. Between them the entire spectrum of radiation therapy needs are covered. The CyberKnife M6 Series offers the ability to deliver high-quality, high-dose distributions that can be confidently delivered to the patient with extreme accuracy over a minimum number of treatments, reducing side effects and preserving patients' quality of life. The TomoTherapy H Series facilitates interactive treatment planning for clinicians to make development of customized plans for a wide range of patients and disease types efficient. The innovative design of the System allows treatment plans to be delivered with integrated, daily CT image guidance, enhancing accuracy and delivering highly precise, intensity-modulated radiation for optimal sparing of healthy tissue and critical structures.
