The European CyberKnife Center Munich is celebrating its 5,000th patient treatment using the CyberKnife® System

 The European CyberKnife Center Munich is celebrating its 5,000th patient  treatment using the CyberKnife® System  Where experience and state-of-the-art technology meet  SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 7, 2014 /CNW/ - Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY)  announced today that the European CyberKnife Center Munich-Grosshadern (ECZM)  has performed 5,000 CyberKnife® treatments since June 2005. The center uses a  CyberKnife M6™ System from the latest generation series, the most advanced  robotic radiosurgery system in the world. Patients of the center benefit from  a treatment option that offers enhanced stereotactic radiosurgery/stereotactic  body radiation therapy (SRS/SBRT): tumors are treated non-invasively with  precisely delivered high doses of radiation.  The European CyberKnife Center, in partnership with the University Hospital of  Munich-Großhadern, offers almost 10 years of experience with this  state-of-the-art technology. "The treatment with the CyberKnife System offers  a number of benefits compared to surgery: no anesthesia, no pain and minimal  side effects," explains Prof. Alexander Muacevic, who founded the treatment  center together with his colleague Prof. Berndt Wowra in 2005. The CyberKnife  System is used for tumors anywhere in the body. Prof. Muacevic added, "We  treat brain tumors as well as tumors in the spine, the lung, the liver, and  the prostate with good clinical outcomes. This remarkable technology is based  on an integration of the latest developments in the field of image guidance,  computer sciences and robotic radiation delivery."  The CyberKnife System features a compact linear accelerator mounted on a  robotic arm. It is the only system that automatically adjusts the beam  delivery to motion during treatment in real-time. This precision is essential  to deliver high doses to the target area while simultaneously minimizing  radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue and organs. The CyberKnife M6  System can deliver non-coplanar, non-isocentric beams from a wider number of  angles around the patient, with the ability to follow tumors in real-time  throughout the treatment. This provides clinicians the confidence to reduce  margins for every disease that is treatable with the CyberKnife System.  "Accuray is proud of the cooperation with the European CyberKnife Center.  We  congratulate the European CyberKnife team on this tremendous achievement, and  are pleased our precise, innovative tumor treatments are available to patients  in such a highly experienced center," said Lionel Hadjadjeba, SVP Business  International & GM EIMEA, Accuray International.
