Formal Writing Assignment – ePoster Presentation
The scientific poster should contain images, appropriately citing the source, to justify your ideas. Your scientific poster should be of a standard suitable for presentation at a professional conference. You may design your scientific poster in any way that you believe best showcases your work within the following guidelines:
• Poster dimensions = width 100cm x height 120cm, maximum 1 poster ‘page’
• Minimum font size = 14 pt
• References/citations must be included as necessary on the poster itself
• Your poster must have a clear title and include your full name
• All images, irrespective of the source, must be fully anonymised
• Images that are not your own original images must correctly acknowledge the source
• Text elements must be presented in an appropriate academic manner. Bullet points are acceptable provided that your meaning is clear, but they should not represent a large proportion of your work.

Students are required to cover the following “key content” in their poster:
CT: A brief introduction of CT imaging, with a focus on the clinical application/value of 2D/3D reconstructions; generation of a series of 2D and 3D CT reconstructed images with use of given DICOM images (available on blackboard), and a brief explanation of these reconstructed images, followed by a summary and conclusion.

MRI: An introduction to MR weightings (T1,T2 and PD); identify the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that manipulate the weightings; provide labelled images of different MR weightings (with associated weighting curves) and explain how the structures have different image contrast. Conclude with examples of the use of MR weightings in clinical practice.

The written speech component must be a maximum of 4 minutes’ duration. You will summarise the key points, noting that this is not simply repeating/reading the information contained in your poster – consider it as an ‘elevator speech’, where you address the main points that you believe your audience must know.
