Accuray Conference Focused on Trends in Radiation Oncology
Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced today highlights from their European AERO™ (Accuray Exchange in Radiation Oncology) Academy conference hosted in Paris, France on February 5th and 6th.
The conference brought together radiation oncologists and medical physicists from Europe to hear from a panel of renowned European and American experts who specialize in the field of precision radiation therapy, medical physics and radiobiology. This year's theme focused on the use of radiation therapy for the treatment of oligometastases and the retreatment of areas that have previously received radiation. Speakers shared their experiences and discussed new research on the role of these approaches for providing cutting-edge treatments to cancer patients.
"We are proud to provide a forum for experts in radiation therapy to come together every other year to exchange information with their peers and engage in stimulating debates on the challenges facing our field," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer at Accuray. "We believe that conferences such as this one, which foster partnerships between industry, clinicians, physicists and scientists will ultimately help shape future clinical decisions, encourage efficiencies and result in improved patient outcomes."
