"With the addition of CyberKnife planning support, RayStation becomes the first treatment planning system to support all major photon linacs. Both Radixact and CyberKnife are extremely versatile delivery platforms, and the ability to plan for these systems in parallel with conventional linacs makes it possible to easily assess which patients benefit the most from the capabilities of the Accuray systems. We are also proud to add support for CyberKnife® in RayCare* at the same time. This means that RaySearch is able to provide all the software needed in a radiation oncology clinic with Accuray treatment delivery systems," said Björn Hårdemark, M.Sc., Deputy CEO at RaySearch.

The CyberKnife System with the Synchrony motion synchronization technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) to adapt radiation delivery in real-time to patient and/or tumor movement throughout the course of treatment. The system's robotic design facilitates the delivery of radiation from potentially thousands of unique angles, significantly expanding the possible positions from which radiation beams can be delivered. The more angles and points in space from which to approach the tumor, the better a physician will be able to maximize radiation dose delivered to the tumor and minimize dose to surrounding healthy tissues. The CyberKnife System is the only device capable of delivering sub-millimetric stereotactic treatments anywhere in the body with speed, efficiency and accuracy - all without the need for human intervention.
Accuray is committed to expanding the powerful potential of radiation therapy to improve as many lives as possible. We invent unique, market-changing solutions that are 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. To learn more, visit www.accuray.com or follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube.
