First centre in Hong Kong treats patients with CyberKnife and TomoTherapy systems


Accuray announced that the Hong Kong Adventist Oncology Center, the first centre locally to offer both the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery and TomoTherapy systems, hosted its official opening ceremony last week. 

Hong Kong Adventist Oncology Center is a newly built cancer center that was designed to accommodate both systems. Their TomoTherapy System was installed late last year and their CyberKnife System was installed in September 2006.

“We are pleased to offer the most flexible, precise solutions for radiation treatment planning and delivery that enable us to deliver personalized treatments to a wide range of patients,” said Stephen Law, clinical director of Hong Kong Adventist Oncology Center. “The CyberKnife and TomoTherapy systems allow our clinicians to create specialised treatments ranging from high-precision radiosurgery for early-stage and localised disease to image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) for more advanced disease throughout the body.”

“Our two leading-edge treatment solutions—the CyberKnife and the TomoTherapy systems—satisfy all the external beam radiation delivery needs of an oncology department and give clinicians flexible, individualised treatment options to use in their pursuit of optimal treatment outcomes.” said Lionel Hadjadjeba, general manager EIMEA and senior vice president of International Business at Accuray. “The adoption of Accuray’s versatile systems are constantly proven to provide comprehensive treatment solutions that serve the full spectrum of radiation oncology patients.”
