The OSRT Education and Research Foundation (OSRTERF) Case Study Presentation Competition is open to all registered and student technologist members of the OSRT. There are separate technologist and student categories for the competition; students and technologists will not compete against each other. The competition is a two-step process and will be judged on the basis of a Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slide presentation with an accompanying outline and a final case study live presentation for participants at the OSRT Annual Meeting.

  • Step 1: Submission of the competition application, a Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slide presentation (saved as a PowerPoint file format), and a detailed outline of the presentation content.
  • Step 2: A live presentation of the submitted Case Study for attendees at the OSRT Annual Meeting.

Please thoroughly review the submission information, competition guidelines, and grading rubric for specific competition rules.

This competition is meant to be a learning opportunity for all participants and should emphasize the value and use of diagnostic imaging. The intent of the case study is to present a complete medical imaging case to your peers following a patient from initial symptoms or initial presentation through treatment and prognosis. The presentation must provide an insight into the importance of medical imaging and, if appropriate radiation therapeutic techniques and their roles in the healthcare profession.

The purposes of the competition include:

  • An opportunity to research a particular disease, condition, or injury
  • Examining the role that diagnostic imaging and radiation therapeutic modalities play in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of disease; a minimum of 3 diagnostic or therapeutic modalities must be included in the presentation, one of which is routine radiography
  • Providing a peer educational experience for registered and student radiographers

This is a competition that requires a minimum standard score for an award. Application materials and preliminary presentation materials will be reviewed by the OSRTERF to determine which proposals are eligible to continue in the competition and be presented at the Annual Meeting. Minimum standard criteria must be met to be selected to present your case study and be eligible for an award. A maximum of 8 case studies may be chosen to continue to the Annual Meeting presentation portion of the competition. The distribution of the 8 selected case studies will be determined by the number of technologist and student applications.

Please note that any materials associated with the presentation must adhere to HIPAA guidelines and be correctly referenced using the most current AMA or APA formatting style. Plagiarism and non-compliance with HIPAA regulations will result in automatic disqualification of any application or presentation.

Your library can help you with AMA or APA styles, or you can find some helpful free links online, like these:
