Offer a feasible and effective technique for treating patients who have previously received radiation treatment for recurrent primary brain tumors and metastases - indications with limited treatment options2
Supply an effective treatment approach for patients with craniopharyngioma, a slow growing brain tumor, with no evidence of long-term complications such as deterioration of visual or neuroendocrine function3
Provide clinical teams with an effective single fraction or ablative option, with low toxicity, for the post-operative treatment of brain metastases4
The CyberKnife System is the industry's only radiation delivery system that features a linear accelerator (linac) directly mounted onto a sophisticated robotic platform to deliver radiation therapy. The robot maneuvers around the patient to deliver multiple beams of radiation from thousands of angles to target the tumor or lesion. Using advanced imaging and Accuray proprietary Synchrony® technology, the system can see the tumor or lesion in the brain and continually verifies its position, automatically correcting and adapting the beam position for even the slightest movement. For example, if the patient moves their head during treatment, the CyberKnife® System detects this movement and synchronizes the treatment target to the new position in real-time delivering maximum dose directly to the tumor while minimizing dose to surrounding health tissue, reducing the risk of many common side effects.
Accuray is committed to expanding the powerful potential of radiation therapy to improve as many lives as possible. We invent unique, market-changing solutions designed to deliver radiation treatments for even the most complex cases—while making commonly treatable cases even easier—to meet the full spectrum of patient needs. We are dedicated to continuous innovation in radiation therapy for oncology, neuro-radiosurgery, and beyond, as we partner with clinicians and administrators, empowering them to help patients get back to their lives, faster. Accuray is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, with facilities worldwide.
