χ2 Analysis of the responses of DATTA panelists determined that the frequencies of responses (established, investigational, unacceptable, or indeterminate) differ significantly from those expected due to chance alone (P<.001). Additionally, construction of 95% confidence intervals for the established vs investigational categories showed a significant difference between these two, indicating that the DATTA panelists considered the technology investigational for the specified indication. Nine DATTA panelists offered no opinion on this technology.
