CLEVELAND, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewRay, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRAY) today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016.
"We made significant progress in bringing our game-changing MRIdian linac technology to the market during the third quarter, filing the FDA 510(k) submission and receiving the CE Mark in September. We are now actively selling the MRIdian Linac System in Europe and have been encouraged by the strong interest there," said Chris A. Raanes, President and Chief Executive Officer of ViewRay. "We secured four new orders in the quarter, two of which were from existing customers ordering a second system, giving us nine new orders in the first nine months of 2016. We recognized revenue on one system in the first quarter and we anticipate that we will recognize revenue on two systems in the fourth quarter of 2016."
Mr. Raanes added, "Evidence of the clinical benefits of real-time MRI imaging while delivering radiotherapy continues to mount. Recently, a research team led by Dr. Maria Thomas of Washington University in St. Louis reported results from a 30-patient study of women undergoing breast cancer radiation therapy showing that MRIdian allowed a 52% reduction in treatment volume1. In addition, presentations by MRIdian System users at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) showed that clinicians are using on-table adaptive treatment and real-time tracking to treat a broad range of cancer patients, including patients whom they would not previously have considered safe to treat with radiation." These presentations can be viewed on ViewRay's website at http://www.viewray.com/in-the-news.
