If I submit an abstract for the CAR's Radiologists-in-Training Research Project at the CAR Annual Scientific Meeting 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.
