If I submit an abstract for the Radiologists-in-Training Research Project at the CAR ASM and it is accepted, can I still submit this same abstract to the RSNA for presentation?
The CAR has verified with the RSNA that presentations accepted for the Radiologists-in-Training Research Project at the CAR Annual Scientific Meeting may also be submitted to the RSNA. IMPORTANT: When submitting an abstract via the RSNA online portal, the field asking, "Has this abstract been presented at any other national conference?" must indicate that the abstract was presented at the "CAR Resident Competition." In addition, it is important that you indicate within the application that you are a resident.
How are abstracts selected for the CAR Annual Scientific Meeting?
Abstracts must follow the outlined format and guidelines to be considered for review. The reviewers will evaluate the Radiologists-in-Training, Educational Exhibit and Scientific Research Project abstracts based on the following criteria:
- originality and innovation
- organization and clarity of presentation
- completeness of submission (all sections filled out)
- relevance to the field
- potential for improving service or practice
Are there any abstract examples I can view?
Yes. Examples from the winning abstracts submitted to the CAR 2022 ASM are available for viewing on the Submission Guidelines page as well as on the Categories page under each category type.
