The AOCR has recently updated their research process and requirements!
AOCR electronic research exhibits are scholarly PowerPoint presentations intended to be reviewed by conference attendees at designated viewing stations during the AOCR Annual Convention. Content should be scientific and/or educational in content and of significant interest to practicing radiologists and trainees. Exhibits selected for presentation meet both the ACGME and AOCR residency requirements for scholarly activity.
**Residents presenting in 2017 are still subject to the previous Scientific Exhibit Guidelines. The new process will begin with exhibits presented at the 2018 AOCR Annual Convention.
Scientific Electronic Exhibit: Scientific electronic exhibits present data from hypothesis-driven original research with a detailed review of findings and their applicability to radiology practice or future research.
Educational Electronic Exhibit: Educational electronic exhibits are designed to present, review, or teach important concepts related to imaging findings, imaging techniques, or interventions of interest to conference attendees.
- Both trainees and practicing physicians are eligible to submit a research abstract.
- Trainees must have one or more supervising faculty named on the abstract/exhibit.
- If an abstract/exhibit is accepted, at least one (1) author of the work or designated representative must be present at the AOCR Annual Convention for a question & answer session with conference attendees at a date and time assigned by the AOCR.
Deadlines for submission
- Abstracts must be submitted by September 15th prior to the AOCR Annual Convention.
- Final electronic exhibits must be submitted by January 15th of the year it will be presented.
