Celebrates 30 Years of Innovation Through Collaboration and the Development of Technologies That Have Helped Set the Standard of Care for the Industry

MADISON, Wis., April 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced today that the company is showcasing advances in hardware and software designed to improve the cancer treatment experience, at ESTRO 2024. The latest generation CyberKnife® and Radixact® platforms provide medical care teams with the technology necessary for expanding the curative power of radiation therapy and delivering on the focus of this year's congress, bridging the care gap. The European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology's (ESTRO) annual meeting will take place May 3 to May 7, 2024, in Glasgow, Scotland.

"This year's ESTRO meeting is particularly meaningful as we recognize – and celebrate – 30 years of collaborating with healthcare professionals and industry partners to develop ground-breaking technologies that expand the application of radiation therapy and access to patients who may benefit from care. The precision and accuracy of the CyberKnife and Radixact Systems enable our customers to personalize the way cancer is managed for each patient throughout their treatment journey while also treating more patients, better and faster, than ever before," said Suzanne Winter, Winter, president and CEO of Accuray.

Accuray is a wellness focused organization, taking into account the patient's health and well-being throughout their treatment when prioritizing product enhancements. The solutions featured at ESTRO represent a few of the most recent innovations introduced over a 30 year history of invention and disruption that has led to new standards in care for the radiation therapy industry.

"Accuray takes pride in our legacy of breakthroughs in cancer and neuro-radiosurgical technology. The CyberKnife System was the first platform to integrate robotic mobility with real-time imaging to address tumor motion, allowing unparalleled precision without the requirement of uncomfortable stereotactic frames," said Seth Blacksburg, M.D., MBA, Chief Medical Officer at Accuray. "With the TomoTherapy System—the precursor to the Radixact System—we furthered our impact by being the first to merge computed tomography (CT) with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) within one system, enabling clinicians to deliver targeted helical radiation therapy designed to meticulously match the tumor's complex shape."

Continued Dr. Blacksburg, "These innovations enable medical care teams worldwide to confidently and non-invasively treat a wide assortment of malignant and benign disease while minimizing the effect on healthy tissues. Our collaboration with world class physicians and engineers continues to forge improvements in oncology and neuro-radiosurgery, empowering the development of novel solutions that advance—and personalize—patient care."

Accuray ESTRO 2024 Highlights: Technologies as Unique as the People for Whom They're Designed

  • Radixact System: Built-in CT scanner enables fast helical imaging, producing the high-quality images necessary for treatment planning. Uniformity in image quality and consistency in Hounsfield units validate their use in this important step in the radiation therapy treatment workflow.

    ClearRT™ enhanced imaging on the Radixact® System enables clinicians to easily, quickly and cost effectively acquire exceptional quality images. The applications of ClearRT imaging for accurate and precise radiation therapy are multi-fold: for fast and accurate image guided patient setup, in use with the Accuray proprietary Synchrony® technology for real-time adaptation of treatment delivery and as the input for monitoring and adapting a patient's treatment plan as needed during the course of treatment with PreciseART® radiotherapy.

  • CyberComm™: A new physics offering intended to significantly reduce the CyberKnife® S7™ System's commissioning time and enable customers to begin treating patients significantly faster.

  • Cenos™* (work in progress): Designed to provide customers with the ability to perform online adaptation of their treatment plan to account for changes that may occur between treatment sessions. This latest innovation from Accuray for the Radixact System is intended to enable clinical teams to adapt on-demand based on the needs of the patient, ensuring clinical objectives are met while providing flexibility to optimize and streamline adaptive workflows.
