We used social media platforms (including Twitter,
ResearchGate and LinkedIn) to circulate the survey.
it was distributed by the radiology societies that agreed to share it by the time of poster submission as a call for action in their newsletters.
The survey was anonymous and we obtained consent for each participant.
The questions (total of 35) focused on key factors affecting research and teaching during training.
we surveyed key demographics and workplace setting as well as future plans of the participants.
We selected the participants interested in thoracic and/or cardiovascular imaging.
Fisher's Exact or Chi-Square tests were used for comparisons,
A p<0.05 indicated a statistically significant difference.
