Thoracic Imaging 2018 Call for Abstracts

On behalf of the Society, we invite you to submit your original cardiothoracic imaging scientific abstracts and educational exhibit proposals for our 2018 annual meeting.

Scientific abstracts may be submitted for consideration as either an oral presentation or electronic poster format. Scientific abstracts will be scored on the basis of scientific merit. Educational abstracts for electronic poster presentation will be scored on the basis of teaching value.
Priority will be given to original work that has not been presented elsewhere.

New this year, the oral scientific sessions will only be open to STR members. Because accepted scientific abstracts are presented in “closed session,” these submissions are not excluded from presentation at larger radiology meetings such as the RSNA.  We hope that this will encourage our members to present their most cutting- edge scientific discoveries at our annual meeting.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is October 16, 2017.
