CBCC selects new CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System

Accuray : 29 August, 2008  (Application Story)
The Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center (CBCC) - one of the USA's largest freestanding, physician owned and operated comprehensive cancer centres - has purchased a CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System from Accuray for its seven-acre campus in Bakersfield, California, USA.
The CyberKnife System is the newest addition to a broad spectrum of technologies and treatments that CBCC offers cancer patients. The CyberKnife System will allow physicians to deliver targeted Radiosurgery to a tumour located anywhere in the body from virtually unlimited positions. The CyberKnife System enables the physician to achieve unprecedented accuracy with sub-millimetre precision thus minimising damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

'We have a philosophy and commitment to bringing the most promising treatments and the most sophisticated technology to our community as quickly as possible. The new CyberKnife System will allow us to treat patients who were untreatable in the past,' said Dr Ravi Patel, founder and chairman of CBCC. 'This technology will make a significant difference in the quality of life for our patients and will give CBCC the capability to treat tumours that have previously been inoperable.'

'With CBCC's purchase of CyberKnife System, we are increasing the access cancer patients have to cutting-edge treatment technology,' said Eric P Lindquist, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Accuray. 'Accuray is proud to assist CBCC in their quest to provide patients with the most advanced cancer care available today.'
