Accuray's CyberKnife VSI System Receives 2010 Minnie Award

Accuray, provider of radiosurgery systems, announced recently that its CyberKnife VSI System is receiving the 2010 Minnie for Best New Radiology Device award from, the comprehensive community internet site for radiologists and related professionals in the medical imaging industry.

The company will receive the award at the 2010 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting taking place in Chicago, Ill. from November 28 to December 3, 2010.

The company announced the system in November 2009. The system is simple and versatile, and broadens the range of treatment options physicians can offer patients - from radiosurgery to conventionally fractionated Robotic IMRT. The system allows for treatment plans customized to patient-specific situations and conditions, such as re-irradiation of previously treated areas, or partial breast irradiation. The 1,000MU/minute X-band linear accelerator and auto-segmentation capabilities make planning and delivery simple, convenient and fast for routine clinical use.

The solution is a robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body non-invasively. Using continual image guidance technology and computer controlled robotic mobility, it automatically tracks, detects and corrects tumor and patient movement in real-time throughout the treatment. This enables high-dose radiation with a pinpoint accuracy that minimizes damage to the surrounding healthy tissue and eliminates the need for invasive head or body stabilization frames.
