Research Abstracts at the Symposium
SBI encourages residents, fellows, and medical students to submit original research abstracts to the annual symposium. Authors of accepted abstracts will have the opportunity to network and discuss their research with breast imaging experts and peers.

Abstracts selected for oral presentation will be presented during one of three Scientific Sessions, while accepted electronic abstracts will be on display throughout the conference and on the 2020 Meeting App.

Research Award Winners
Two research prizes are awarded for abstracts presented at the annual Symposium: one to a medical student/resident (at time of submission) and one to a fellow-in-training (at time of submission), based on scientific merit. Research prizes include $1,000 and an award to each winning resident and fellow. Winning abstracts may be reproduced in the member newsletter, SBI News, and/or the Journal of Breast Imaging.
