For the tenth time since 1996, IMV Medical Information Division is surveying radiation therapy sites in the U.S. The 2015/16 Radiation Therapy Census Database currently identifies approximately 2,300 hospital and non-hospital locations that treat patients with radiation. The current survey began in July 2015 and finished in March 2017.
The survey collects data on the types of treatments being performed, courses of treatment and treatment volume, as well as features and manufacturers of installed linear accelerators, IGRT systems, simulators, HDR brachytherapy equipment, and treatment planning units. It also covers equipment buying plans, operational budgets and staffing levels.
