Accuray Launches New Configuration for CyberKnife System

September 18, 2008 - Accuray Inc. said it is offering a new layout for the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System treatment vault that will enable installation of the system into most existing conventional gantry LINAC vaults.

With this new, smaller footprint, hospitals reportedly will be able to save hundreds of thousands of dollars or more on construction and shielding costs and begin treating patients more quickly.

While nearly identical feature-wise to the standard CyberKnife vault layout, the gantry LINAC vault layout reduces both treatment vault and equipment room footprints, giving customers more flexibility in where they can place a CyberKnife System, said Accuray.

Accuray will highlight its new vault layout at ASTRO 2008.
