Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Third Quarter 2012 Varian Medical Systems Incorporated Earnings Conference Call. My name is Ann and I will be your coordinator for today's call. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder this conference is being recorded for replay purposes. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the presentation over to your host for today's call, Mr. Spencer Sias, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please proceed, sir.

Spencer R. Sias

Thank you. Hi, folks, just move your slide to Varian Medical Systems and I apologize for the lateness of getting this call started. We had trouble with our conference operator. But welcome, though, to the Varian Medical Systems Conference Call for the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2012. Participating in this call are Tim Guertin, President and CEO; Elisha Finney, CFO; Dow Wilson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer; and Tai Chen, our Corporate Controller. Tim and Elisha will summarize our results and we'll take your questions following the presentation. To simplify our discussion, unless otherwise stated, all references to the quarter or year are fiscal quarters and fiscal years, the quarterly comparisons are for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 versus the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
