We investigated the markets according to the answers provided in the screening portion of our survey. Respondents from medical facilities that conduct tumor removal surgeries but do not own an IMRI machine completed Survey B, while those from facilities that own an IMRI machine conducted one of two versions of Survey A. Respondents that indicated they operated multiple IMRI machines completed version Aii, while those who indicated that their medical facility operated a single IMRI machine continued to complete the remainder of Survey A.
This survey investigated medical facilities that conduct brain tumor removal surgeries across the United States. We specifically targeted purchasers who would be responsible for making related decisions for the medical facility. These medical facilities vary in terms of size and specialization. In terms of tumorectomy procedures, our respondents facilities conduct anywhere from 2 to 4,000 tumor removal surgeries annually. We investigated a total of 100 such facilities in order to gain a comprehensive portrayal of the market. Of the 100 results, 27 were medical facilities that conduct tumorectomy procedures but do not yet own/operate an IMRI machine. Our aim originally was to target 40 such facilities, but it became apparent that the majority of facilities that conduct such procedures have already purchased an IMRI machine. In order to reach our sample size target of 100, the remaining 73 respondents were defined as IMRI users. Of those 73 respondents, 42 centers owned one IMRI machine and 31 centers owned multiple machines, which varied in number.
