Survey Methodology

Dominic & Irvine Research, an independent market research firm, surveyed 1,460 radiation oncology sites in the United States by telephone between June and December of 2007 to determine the nature of their radiation oncology program, the systems that were utilized at the site (linear accelerator, intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, etc.), and the pattern of equipment usage for both intracranial and extracranial treatments. All-purpose units, as referenced above, include Varian Medical Systems' Trilogy(TM), Elekta's Synergy(R), BrainLAB's Novalis(R) and TomoTherapy's Hi-Art(R). Interviews were conducted with the head or director of radiation oncology as well as radiation oncologists and physicists at some sites.
