More Encouraging Progress From Accuray

Small-cap radiation oncology system manufacturer Accuray (ARAY) has frustrated more than a few investors and analysts over the years, as this company has struggled to gain real traction against Varian Medical Systems (VAR) and Elekta (OTCPK:EKTAY) (to a lesser extent) in the roughly $5.5 billion market for radiation oncology systems.
