Research Exhibits

The AOCR has recently updated their research process and requirements!

AOCR electronic research exhibits are scholarly PowerPoint presentations intended to be reviewed by conference attendees at designated viewing stations during the AOCR Annual Convention. Content should be scientific and/or educational in content and of significant interest to practicing radiologists and trainees. Exhibits selected for presentation meet both the ACGME and AOCR residency requirements for scholarly activity.
