Abstract submissions are very much encouraged and there will be prizes awarded for the best oral and the best poster presentation. The winner of each category will be notified at the close of the meeting. Please read the Instructions for Preparation of Abstracts carefully before submission. Only abstracts submitted ONLINE will be accepted. By submitting an abstract you are confirming that this data has not been published, accepted or submitted elsewhere.
First authors of accepted abstracts who are students will receive free registration.
WHEN IS AN ABSTRACT SCIENTIFIC AND WHEN IS IT EDUCATIONAL?
The BSBR Executive Committee will decide if a submission is scientific or educational. Generally if the submission deals with the analysis of a number of cases it is scientific and it should follow the guidance for scientific abstracts. Service evaluation and audit should also follow the guidance for scientific abstracts. We encourage the submission of any abstract that will be of interest to delegates, even if it is difficult to categorise.
ABSTRACT PUBLICATION – BREAST CANCER RESEARCH
Accepted research abstracts will be published online in the Breast Cancer Research journal. ONLY research abstracts will be published in the Journal. However ALL accepted abstracts for the 2017 conference will be published separately on the British Society of Breast Radiology website. Poster authors will be asked to provide PDF copies of their poster which will be displayed on the website prior to the conference. Accepted oral presenters will be asked to submit a PDF PowerPoint copy of their presentation which will be available to download from the British Society of Breast Radiology website after the conference.

GUIDANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR A SCIENTIFIC ABSTRACT
The purpose of the abstract is to convey as concisely and clearly as possible the findings of the research. Abstracts should include details of work performed and actual results rather than statements of intent. The abstract should be divided into four sections – the introduction, methods, results and conclusions.
The introduction should state the nature of the problem and the purpose of the research or the question to be answered by the study. A summary of the context or background informing the study should also be included.
The methods should state the subjects enrolled and in what setting, how they were recruited, what test was undertaken, how the test was done, how the results were analysed and by whom and what statistical tests were undertaken.
The results should state the number and sex of subjects recruited, the findings of the test e.g. sensitivity and specificity, and actual numbers in brackets (number positive/total number and number negative/total number) together with the appropriate statistical test. There may be several results to give in this section.
The conclusion should state the significance of the findings and how the results of the study will impact on current practice. Comments on any further work required to validate the findings should also be included.
GUIDANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR AN EDUCATIONAL ABSTRACT
The purpose of the abstract is to outline clearly and concisely the aim and the messages of the presentation. The abstract should contain clear learning objectives, for example: to recognise…to correctly identify…..to understand…..etc.
It should state the background context for these objectives and include a justification of why they are important.
The abstract should state how these objectives are to be met and give details. For example, if it is a case series or pictorial review, details should be given of the number of cases and a summary of the range of findings that will be presented.
Abstracts should be submitted ONLINE at www.bsbrevents.org
