Accuray has received the Chinese National Medical Products Administration’s (NMPA) approval for its Accuray Precision treatment planning system (TPS), marking a significant milestone for cancer treatment in China.

The Accuray Precision TPS is set to be used alongside the CNNC-Accuray joint venture’s Tomo C radiation therapy system, which offers helical imaging and radiation delivery capabilities.

This combination is poised to offer medical teams a new solution for delivering highly precise and accurate radiotherapy treatments, thereby broadening the scope of care available to cancer patients across China.

Developed to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of treatment plans, the Accuray Precision TPS allows clinicians to swiftly adapt treatment strategies.

It accounts for changes in tumour size, shape and location, as well as shifts in the positioning of organs and healthy tissue. This adaptability significantly bolsters the precision of cancer treatments.

Accuray president and CEO Suzanne Winter said: “With this approval, our China joint venture can begin shipping the Tomo C System to their end customers, an important step forward in helping to address an unmet need for precision radiation therapy.
