    • Clinical case studies: 58 percent
    • Research reports: 49 percent
    • Instructional videos: 33 percent
    • Whitepapers: 29 percent
    • Webcasts: 20 percent
    • Other: 15 percent
    • Don't use web-based resources: 10 percent

Survey results are based on responses from 164 physicians collected in April 2014.
