Late Breaking Abstracts

The Late Breaking Abstract program is not designed to favor investigators who inadvertently missed the deadline for the regular abstract submission. Furthermore, abstracts reporting results based on small size series, because of their usual questionable power, are discouraged as Late Breaking Abstract, and abstracts on case reports would be considered only under exceptional circumstances given their inherent anecdotal nature.

Late Breaking Abstracts may be submitted by MDS Members or non-members.Click here to submit a Late Breaking Abstract.
