By News Release


Building on its heritage of patient-first innovation, at this year's ASTRO (American Society for Radiation Oncology) Annual Meeting, Accuray Incorporated will showcase radiation therapy solutions designed to enable clinicians to deliver truly personalized cancer treatments aligned to the needs of each patient. Meeting attendees can visit Accuray at booth #2511 on October 21 - 23, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas to learn how advances in Accuray radiation therapy delivery systems and software are making it easier and faster to provide extremely precise results for the full range of cancer cases, from initial treatment to adaptive therapy to retreatments.

"We are proud to have the opportunity to attend this important meeting and provide access to information, demonstrations and educational opportunities for learning about advances in Accuray technologies. We are committed to partnering with the radiation oncology community to develop innovative products that will improve patient care, now and into the future," said Lionel Hadjadjeba, M.D., Senior Vice President, and Chief Commercial Officer at Accuray.

Meeting Highlights

New products and upcoming developments 

  • CyberKnife® VOLO™ Optimizer: This next-generation optimizer simplifies the process of creating treatment plans, improves plan quality and enables more efficient exploration of the tradeoffs between treatment time and plan quality. Preliminary data from Accuray indicates that the CyberKnife VOLO Optimizer will provide a significant reduction in optimization time, and up to 50 percent reduction in treatment delivery time. Accuray will be launching this new optimizer at its booth at 11:00 am on Sunday, October 21st
  • CTrue™ IR (Iterative Reconstruction) for the Radixact® System: This powerful IR software improves soft-tissue contrast and reduces noise, enhancing image quality, while maintaining the same low imaging dose and fast reconstruction time as earlier versions of the software. These enhancements enable clinicians to efficiently deliver precise treatments more quickly, for more patients.
  • Radixact System with Real-Time Motion Synchronization* [510(k) pending, not available for sale]: Capabilities of the Radixact System are being expanded to offer real-time motion synchronization, with the goal of improving dose accuracy and treatment times compared to other methods, such as gating. These capabilities will build on the current Radixact System, which is fully integrated with the Accuray Precision® Treatment Planning System and iDMS™ Data Management System. These hardware and software solutions work seamlessly together and were introduced to help improve treatment outcomes and workflow efficiencies, enabling clinicians to provide optimal treatments for more patients, every day. *Not 510(k) cleared or available for commercial distribution

Accuray will host two educational symposia and a broad range of Accuray Exchange in Radiation Oncology (AERO™) Academy sessions. ASTRO meeting attendees will have the chance to learn from industry experts about clinical advances and best practices that have the potential to improve cancer patients' outcomes and quality of life.
