Call for abstracts
The RCR abstract competitions spotlight trainee and consultant authors' innovative projects, allowing you to share your work with an audience of clinical radiologists, clinical oncologists and allied healthcare professionals in the UK and globally.

Each year we welcome abstracts covering a wide range of scientific and quality improvement projects. Entries will be available to view in-person and online for all attendees.

Clinical Radiology George and Vera Ansell competition – abstracts should be submitted based on scientific research

Clinical Radiology Audit ePoster competition – abstracts based on a piece of work in which local performance is assessed against a standard and will be entered for ePoster display only.
Authors in the scientific research categories may also be selected for oral presentation.
All competitions are open to everyone, including RCR Fellows, members and all non-members giving more opportunities for colleagues around the world to share their work.
