Accuray Showcases CyberKnife and Radixact Systems at ASTRO 2017

September 21, 2017 — Accuray Inc. announced that data and first-hand experience with its advanced CyberKnife and Radixact Systems will be shared by leading radiation oncology practitioners at the 2017 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting, Sept. 24-27 in San Diego.

Technology highlights from the show will include:

  • The CyberKnife System upgrade with the Accuray Precision Treatment Planning System (TPS): the fully integrated Accuray TPS allows clinicians to reduce treatment times, while advanced TPS features enhance workflow efficiencies;
  • The Radixact System: the next-generation TomoTherapy platform represents a major step forward in treatment speed, efficiency and ease of use, enabling customers to deliver precise radiation treatments to a high volume of patients; and
  • The CyberKnife System High-Definition ImagingRing (HDI): a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging system designed to enable both 3-D volumetric imaging and adaptive radiotherapy workflows. When paired with the system's accurate couch imaging and patient registration, along with true robotic alignment, it is projected to facilitate high precision and versatility in stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy. The CyberKnife System HDI is a work in progress and not available for sale in any market.

ASTRO attendees can attend educational symposia and Accuray Exchange in Radiation Oncology (AERO) Academy sessions to learn about advances in clinical practice that are transforming patient experience and outcomes.
