  • Content of your Talk
    Consistent with the educational objectives of the SMRT meeting program, please feel free to present material from your own work, but remember that overviews of topics should be balanced to include work from others as appropriate. Inclusion of the latest research results usually adds to educational value and appeal, but should not outweigh presentation of basic material which may be what most of the audience is seeking in an educational program. Based upon prior surveys, the primary goals of the audience are to keep current with clinical material or methodology in their specialty and to keep up with current advances in diagnosis. The most common attendee criticisms are that the lectures either are too broad, too complicated, or presented from too narrow a perspective.

    Financial Interests or Relationships
    The SMRT meeting will offer Category A Continuing Education Credit and CPD Credit to technologists/radiographers in attendance, and therefore faculty members are required to disclose financial interests or relationships with organizations that may have a direct interest in the subject matter of the presentation. We are required to obtain a “Declaration of Relevant Financial Relationships” from every speaker, even if there is no such relationship to declare.

    The Program and Education Chairs will work with speakers to address any real or potential conflicts to assure an unbiased and objective talk. Further, any conflict will be addressed and identified openly so that the listeners may form their own judgments about the presentation in light of full disclosure of the facts. Towards this end, each speaker is required to make an oral and visual declaration at the start of the talk indicating any relevant financial interests or relationships, or the absence thereof. The intent of these procedures is to enable speakers who have disclosed relevant financial interests to make their presentations normally.

    Identifying Products and Discussing Unlabeled Uses of Products
    Speakers are also required to observe the following ISMRM/SMRT policies when identifying products and discussing unlabeled uses of products. When you sign the Speaker Declaration/Permission to Record Form you will be agreeing to abide by these policies.

    Generic and Trade Names
    Presentations must give a balanced view of therapeutic options. Faculty use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality. If trade names are used, those of several companies should be used rather than only that of a single manufacturer.

    Unlabeled Uses of Products
    When an unlabeled use of a commercial product, or investigational use not yet approved for any purpose is discussed during an educational activity, the speaker is required to disclose that the product is not labeled for the use under discussion or that the product is still investigational.

    Scientific Research
    All scientific research referred to, reported or used in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.
