Call for Abstracts

SMRT 24th Annual Meeting

Toronto, Canada

Abstract Submission Deadline: 10 December 2014,  23:59 US EST


The Chairs of the SMRT Program and Education Committees are pleased to announce the “Call for Abstracts” for our 24th Annual Meeting - At the Forefront of MR Education - to be held in Toronto, Canada on 30-31 May, 2015.

We warmly invite all practicing MR Technologists, Radiographers and students to share their work with fellow professionals by submitting an abstract which may subsequently take the form of an oral or poster presentation. All abstract submissions must be original work that has not been previously presented or published. Scores will be awarded based on the quality of the submitted abstracts, and a total of seven abstracts will be included in the Annual meeting program as oral presentations.

The Proffered Papers and Poster Presentations continue to be an integral component of the SMRT Annual Meeting by not only highlighting current and emerging technological advances, but also by promoting the important work being done by our colleagues across the globe. Posters will be on display throughout the 2-day Annual meeting and a poster reception/walking tour will be held during the meeting where the winning posters will be presented by their respective authors. This reception provides an excellent opportunity for networking in a relaxed atmosphere while viewing the work of fellow MR Professionals. All poster authors will be available to discuss their work and answer any questions. The awards for the prize-winning Proffered Papers and Posters will be presented at the meeting on Sunday, 31 May 2015.

Please note that the deadline for abstract submissions is 10 December 2014. In addition, the online application process includes a link to the required templates (clinical or research) for all abstract submissions.

We are looking forward to another record-breaking year of quality submissions highlighting the great work being done within our profession.
