three years. By the end of fiscal 2013, we booked nearly 1,000 orders and completed some 500 instal-
lations of our TrueBeamTM system, which technologically set a new standard for linear accelerators
when it was introduced in 2010. During the year we launched and booked orders for some 60 new
systems and upgrade packages for our EdgeTM radiosurgery suite, which we hope will drive revolution-
ary advances in the fight against lung cancer and many other diseases.
