The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) is accepting applications for the seventh annual Toshiba Young Investigator Award (YIA).

Underwritten by Toshiba America Medical Systems, the YIA program supports the professional and clinical development of top radiology residents and cardiology fellows within five years of completing a training program.    

Each applicant must submit an abstract and a mini-manuscript of 1,000 words, concerning research related to the technical and clinical advancement of cardiovascular CT. Five finalists will be selected, and each will give an oral presentation at SCCT’s Eighth Annual Scientific Meeting, July 11–14, in Montréal, Canada.

All five finalists will be granted a free year of SCCT membership, complimentary registration to the meeting and a $1,000 travel stipend. Two winners will be announced at the meeting, and their manuscripts will be highlighted on the scientific meeting website and will be eligible for priority peer-reviewed publication in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
