Hua Shan Hospital installs Shanghai’s first CyberKnife system

Accuray : 27 November, 2007  (New Product)
The Hua Shan Hospital in Shanghai has installed Accuray’s CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System for its Pudong District facility.
The installation marks the first CyberKnife System in Shanghai and the fifth system in China, providing greater patient access to the benefits of robotic radiosurgery.

“Hua Shan Hospital’s reputation as a premier provider of health care in Shanghai and the surrounding region makes it a perfect location for the region’s first CyberKnife System,” said Euan S Thomson, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Accuray. “This installation is another step toward universal access to CyberKnife Radiosurgery as a non-surgical option for cancer care.”

The Hua Shan Hospital installation is the 121st CyberKnife installation to date. China’s previous four CyberKnife Systems are located at Hong Kong Adventist Hospital in Hong Kong, Shandong LuTai Tumour Hospital in the Jinan Shandong Province, Tianjin Cancer Hospital in Tianjin, and Ruikang Hospital in Nanning, Guangxi province.

Hua Shan Hospital has been in partnership with Harvard Medical International since 2001 and serves as the primary teaching hospital of the Fudan University Medical School. Hua Shan Hospital has created a network of facilities to address the emerging needs of the country's people. The network currently includes Hua Shan Hospital in Shanghai’s embassy district, Hua Shan Hospital in Pudong, and Nanchang Zhonghuan Hospital. The hospital’s facility in Pudong serves as a centre of excellence in oncology.
