Accuray will also showcase the latest capabilities of its newest offering, the CyberKnife VSI System, launched at last year's ASTRO meeting. Additionally, a new technology, Lung Optimized Treatment, which is pending 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), will be demonstrated. The new technology is designed to expand the CyberKnife System's ability to non-invasively track tumor motion and potentially offer the option of fiducial-free treatments for more lung cancer patients.
"Throughout the past year CyberKnife radiosurgery has achieved significant growth globally as demonstrated by the treatment of the 100,000th patient, installation of the 206th CyberKnife System and growing use of the technology for extracranial indications including prostate and lung," said Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., president and CEO of Accuray. "The research presented at ASTRO 2010 demonstrates the rapid adoption and expanding applications for CyberKnife radiosurgery as an evolving, patient-friendly cancer treatment."
ASTRO meeting attendees are invited to tour the nearby CyberKnife Centers of San Diego on Monday, November 1 and Tuesday, November 2. More information on these tours, the aforementioned in-booth presentations and CyberKnife posters and presentations of interest is available at www.accurayescalate.
