Accuray Will Showcase Its CyberKnife® And TomoTherapy® Systems At CHINA-HOSPEQ 2013

Stocks in this article: ARAY

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), announced today its participation in the 22 nd China International Medical Instruments and Equipment Exhibition and Seminar ( CHINA-HOSPEQ), taking place from Friday, August 16 to Sunday, August 18, 2013.

For the first time, China's hospital procurement officials will be able to see firsthand Accuray's CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems at CHINA-HOSPEQ 2013 (booth #G02). On display in the booth will be system models and demonstration stations featuring various products and clinical illustrations. PLA General Hospital and Peking Union Medical College Hospital in Beijing are leading the charge with these new technologies, having already acquired the CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems. PLA General Hospital is the first and only China hospital with both systems. Cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality in China, with almost two million cancer deaths nationwide during 2008. The CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems give physicians in China the most innovative and precise treatment solutions to help make the pain and suffering of cancer a thing of the past, and provide new hope to more cancer patients.

"We are committed to strengthening our partnerships in China, with the government and distributors, to offer more patients the opportunity to benefit from our effective, personalized treatments," said Kelly Londy, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Accuray.

"Our factory in Chengdu produces the TomoTherapy System's linear accelerators (linacs) for the global market.  Accuray continues to invest in this factory with new machinery, and is continuing to further our commitment to quality, evidenced by the factory's ISO 9001 accreditation," said Roger Cao, M.D., Asia Pacific president at Accuray.

The TomoTherapy System is the only radiation therapy system designed specifically for image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy. Its on-board CT scanner enables daily pre-treatment imaging for increased accuracy and the system's linear accelerator (linac) enables the continuous helical delivery of radiation from 360 degrees around the patient, providing for increased treatment precision.
