adoption for both the new CyberKnife® M6™ Series and TomoTherapy® H™ Series

TomoTherapy Systems and are experiencing significant benefits, including
reduced treatment times, improved treatment plan quality, expanded patient
treatment options for the CyberKnife M6 System, and reduced treatment planning
time with the TomoHDA System.

allowing us to minimize side effects and preserve our patients' quality of
life," said Jeffrey S. Eshleman, M.D., Director of Radiation Oncology, Ann B.
Barshinger Cancer Institute of Lancaster General Health in Pennsylvania. "We

Prof. Eric Lartigau, M.D., Ph.D., Centre Oscar Lambret, Lille, France. "The
system allows rapid treatment planning and high-precision dose delivery, a
combination of features that lends itself well to breast cancer cases and

Systems, our guiding mission is always to provide patients with the best
possible treatment outcomes," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief
