The Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) Abstract Competition is back for another year.
The CAR and the Canadian Radiological Foundation (CRF) will be supporting the annual abstract competitions for radiologists and radiologists-in-training to be presented at CAR 2022 in five abstract categories – Departmental Clinical Audit Project, Radiologist-In-Training Research Project, Scientific Research Project, Value of Radiology Project. The top-ranking Educational Exhibit digital presentations will be awarded prizes and celebrated at the CAR Awards Ceremony.
Dr. James Nugent and his research group from the Department of Radiology at the University of British Columbia took home first place last year in the Education Exhibit category with their abstract entitled Modern Radiologic Diagnosis and Management of Acute Cholecystitis – What’s New in the Hot Gallbladder. He says the event was a great way to present his research in front of colleagues from across the country.
“The CAR’s 2021 annual meeting featured quality speakers and a variety of research and education topics. The trainee-oriented sessions were truly interactive. I’m glad I attended and am looking forward to next year.”
Dr. Aisin Ibrahim submitted an abstract as part of a group from McGill University, Laval University, and the University of Montreal which took home the top spot in the Departmental Clinical Audit category. Their winning submission was called Diabetic Foot: How to Investigate Better. He says it was a great honour to take part in the competition.
“This experience helped motivate me to continue working on other projects, participate in future meetings and share my contributions to research in radiology as much as I can.”
The CAR’s Scientific Planning Committee is currently accepting abstract submissions for the 2022 competition and the deadline is fast approaching. All abstracts must be submitted for consideration on or before December 13, 2021. Find out more about how to submit your abstract here.
