Accuray Exchange in Radiation Oncology (AERO) is hosting a Users' Meeting with a slightly different focus than in years past. Rather than hours of scientific talks on clinical and physics research, we are inviting our customers to present either individual patient cases from a clinical or physics/treatment planning perspective or research work, which will serve as the basis for discussion and education about the use of the CyberKnife® System and TomoTherapy® System in clinical practice.

Program Highlights:
· Opening Welcome Reception (Friday)
· Keynote and Invited Presentations
· Clinical Breakout Sessions TomoTherapy®,and CyberKnife® Systems
· Administrator and Therapist Breakout Sessions
· Interactive Town Hall Lunch Meeting

Objective: Our goals are to promote the exchange of best practices and to facilitate open discussion and collaboration.
