Can a medical student submit an abstract for the Radiologists-in-Training Research Project category?
Yes, medical students who have performed research projects in radiology can submit an abstract for consideration.
Can I submit more than one abstract?
There are no restrictions on the number of abstracts you may submit, or on the number of abstracts you may present.
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
Once I have submitted an abstract how do I access the abstract if I need to edit my submission?
You can log back into your Swoogo account and edit your submission(s) up until December 5, 2023, 11:59 pm EST.
What do I do if I did not receive a confirmation email after submitting my abstract?
For technical assistance with the submission site please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I want to make a change to my abstract after the deadline?
Changes to the abstract are not permitted under any circumstances after the deadline.
I have missed the submission deadline. Can I still submit an abstract?

How will I know if my abstract is accepted?
All presenting authors who submitted abstracts will be notified by email in January 2024, as to whether or not their abstract was selected.
