Survey Methodology:  A survey containing 38 questions and divided into four groups was developed and made available online. The questionnaire was sent to over 1,000 heads of radiology departments in Europe. Of the 1,038 radiologists asked to participate in this survey, 123 responded. Excluding the 125 invitations to the survey that could not be delivered, the response rate was 13 %.
A list of the nationalities of respondents is available here.

Survey Methodology: Euro-BioImaging conducted a Europe-wide survey on imaging research infrastructure that ran from June 1 to July 15 2011 with the aim of establishing an inventory of existing imaging infrastructure and assessing the needs of users, providers, industry and funders. Responses were received from 660 participants. However, results are not representative or comprehensive for each technology or country and therefore need to be interpreted with caution.
