November 5, 2015 — Accuray Inc. and RaySearch Laboratories AB announced an expansion on their existing relationship with the signing of a new long-term collaboration agreement for the integration of treatment planning support for the TomoTherapy and CyberKnife systems in the RayStation treatment planning system (TPS).

Accuray and RaySearch previously announced a long-term collaboration regarding the RayCare oncology information system.

Under the contract, Accuray will have the opportunity to offer RayStation to clinicians who use the TomoTherapy and CyberKnife system product portfolios. Current RayStation users report that the software provides multiple benefits including advanced treatment planning tools, leading workflow support, and an excellent user experience, all of which enhance treatment delivery flexibility within a radiation oncology department.

Accuray has an installed base of more than 500 TomoTherapy Systems and more than 300 CyberKnife Systems worldwide. Treatment planning support for TomoTherapy Systems in RayStation is targeted for release during 2016 and support for CyberKnife Systems for release during 2017.

The CyberKnife M6 Series robotic full-body radiosurgery system enables precise, high-quality, high-dose distributions 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 efficiently enables physicians to customize treatment plans for the entire range of radiation therapy patients and disease types. Its design enables treatment plans to be delivered with integrated, daily computed tomography (CT) image guidance, enhancing accuracy and delivering highly precise, intensity-modulated radiation for optimal sparing of healthy tissue and critical structures.
