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, and a separate detailed outline of the presentation content, and
  • Step 2*: A live presentation of the submitted Case Study for attendees at the OSRT Educator Symposium (student presenters) or the OSRT Annual Meeting (registered technologists/therapist presenters).

*Applicants must meet a minumum score in step 1 to be qualified to continue to step 2.

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

The purposes of the competition include:

  • Serving as a learning opportunity for all participants,
  • Emphasizing the value and use of diagnostic imaging,
  • Researching a particular disease, condition, or injury,
  • Following a patient from initial symptoms or presentation through treatment and prognosis,
  • Examining the importance and 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, 1 of which is routine radiography, and
  • 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 Student and educator Symposium (for students) or the Annual Meeting (for technologists/therapists). Minimum standard criteria must be met to be selected to present your case study and be eligible for an award. A maximum of 3 student case studies may be chosen to continue to the Student and Educators Symposium and 3 registered technologist/therapist case studies continue to the Annual Meeting presentation portions of the competition.

Please note that any materials associated with the presentation must adhere to HIPAA guidelines and be correctly referenced to 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.
