C-RAD Showcases Advanced SGRT Technologies and Debuts Automated Breast Cancer Treatment Capabilities with Accuray at ASTRO Annual Meeting

UPPSALA, Sweden, October 13, 2022 – C-RAD will be attending the 64th American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting in San Antonio (booth 2923) from October 23-26 as a global leader in surface guided radiation therapy (SGRT) technologies. SGRT is becoming essential care in radiation therapy due to its ability to support greater treatment accuracy in patient positioning, deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH), and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).

C-RAD (NASDAQ Stockholm: CRAD B) announced today, in partnership with Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY), they will be showcasing a new option for improving the care of people diagnosed with breast cancer. Meeting attendees are invited to attend the U.S. unveiling of the new breast cancer treatment package* for the Radixact® system at the Accuray booth, 2586, on Sunday, October 23 at 10:30 am CT.

“ASTRO 2022 marks an important milestone for our organization as we launch, with C-RAD, a new option for the Radixact system for treating a wide range of breast cancer patients. Breast cancer remains a significant women’s health issue, and with early detection and more precise treatment technologies, can have a major impact on extending and improving the quality of patients’ lives. It seems appropriate to make this announcement during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when people worldwide join to raise awareness of improving early diagnosis and treatment options for the disease. This introduction is the result of our strong investment in R&D to deliver robust and differentiated products that improve lives,” said Suzanne Winter, president and chief executive officer of Accuray.

The breast cancer treatment package is designed to enable radiotherapy teams to provide integrated and automated DIBH treatments using TomoDirect™ treatment delivery mode on the Radixact System through a fully integrated and automated surface-guided radiation therapy (SGRT) solution, in as little as 10-minute treatment time slots.

“SGRT technology has proven its substantial benefits in hospitals and clinics around the world, shown in the multitude of clinical research. C-RAD firmly believes surface tracking is becoming standard of care in radiation therapy, a belief we share with Accuray,” says Tim Thurn, CEO of C-RAD AB. “For breast cancer treatment with DIBH, our workflow has fantastic results for the clinical care team and patients. DIBH on Catalyst+HD can be used for a multitude of treatments, but for breast cancer treatments the seamless workflow allows deep inspiration treatment on the Radixact system to reduce the dose exposure to the heart, among other benefits. The goggles as well as the in-room panels help guide the patient in their breathing cycles and increase the patients’ comfort during treatment.”
