Presenting your first poster. It's an experience you're not likely to forget, and it's a rite of passage for almost every member of the radiology community. Everyone wants their poster presentation to be special, to mean something and be recognized by other industry experts. After all, this is the work you've so passionately dedicated your time, energy, and emotional effort to - the summation of, in some cases, your life's work to date. 

The poster session is one of our favorite parts of ISCT’s annual CT symposium. It’s a long-standing tradition, one that gives the up-and-coming bright young minds of radiology the chance to share their science or teaching of CT with some of the industry’s elite physicians and professors, many of whose own research has shaped the current world of computed tomography. Opportunities like these are instrumental in establishing industry connections, gaining recognition for your research, and shaping the future of your career in radiology. 

That’s why we’re excited to announce that we are now accepting abstracts for posters to be presented at our 20th annual CT symposium: ISCT 2018. This year’s program will feature oral presentations of 15 abstracts and electronic scientific and educational posters.

The deadline for submissions is June 1st, and submitters will be notified by June 15th with their acceptance status.

All abstracts must be submitted online by filling out our Poster Abstract Form. The ISCT’s Program Committee will accept abstracts and scientific/educational posters falling under one of the following categories:

Abdomen and pelvic
Cardiac
Contrast Material
Image Processing
Informatics
Interventional
Neuro
Oncology
Pediatric
Practice Management
Radiation Management and Exposure
Technical Developments
Thoracic
Vascular
Workflow

Trainees are encouraged to submit their abstracts and posters, and a $250 scholarship will be awarded to all presenting authors. All of the submissions will be scored and judged by a panel selected by ISCT’s faculty before the conference. These radiology experts will judge each submission based on its scientific merit, relevance to hot topics in radiology, the demonstration of evidence-based approaches to care that incorporate innovative or emerging techniques. Judges will also consider the overall completeness of the submission when determining which abstracts to accept.

Presenting a scientific poster is an incredible experience, and the opportunity to do so in front of some of the greatest minds in radiology at one of the premier CT conferences isn’t one that should be passed up.
