Abstract preparation

There are two types of abstract submission: original scientific research and educational exhibit.

Original Scientific Research Abstracts (for oral or poster presentation)

Material suitable for scientific presentation may include both laboratory and clinical investigations of topics that would be appropriate for publication in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR). In general, original research, important new observations, and other presentations that represent substantial work with demonstrable results are appropriate for scientific presentations. Abstracts submitted in this category will be assigned to either oral or poster presentation after acceptance but while still blinded. Assignment to oral or poster presentation is based upon the subject and nature of the abstracts accepted each year, as well as the abstract score. Authors who feel that their research is best presented as a poster must designate "Poster only" when they submit their abstract. All original scientific research posters will be presented in the traditional, hard-copy format. A structured abstract is required and should be organized into the following four required sections *Required* Purpose: Provide a succinct statement of the purpose of your study. *Required* Materials and Methods: Describe the nature of the subjects, methods of selection, materials (including manufacturers' names and locations-city and state or country), and all procedures. The characteristics of study group(s) (such as sex distribution, mean age, underlying medical problems) should be included in this section. References should be made to established methods that have been published. New or substantially modified methods should be described, supported with rationale, and critically evaluated for real and potential limitations. *Required* Results: Actual data (with statistical significance) should be included in the Results. Report of data and observations should be in logical sequence in the text, tables and illustrations. Data given in tables should not be repeated in the text. *Required* Conclusion: The conclusions should be drawn directly from the results of the study. Consider new and important aspects of the study and conclusions that can be drawn directly from your data. Include implications of findings, and limitations of your study. Avoid claiming priority, alluding to work that has not been completed, or making unqualified statements not supported by your data. Recommendations, when appropriate, should be made. (Optional) References: Number any references in the order in which they appear in the text. For further information, refer to the Instructions for Authors at
