Besides all live sessions during the world congress, we had 43 CSI Presentations. 

“CSI” stands for “cases, studies, and innovations.” The CSI Presentations have replaced the former traditional scientific poster concept. They are more than posters. They are scientific presentations elevated to a new level. Engaging live group discussions were also held where the authors were able to present and answer questions from the participants. 

Thank you to the Scientific Research, Grants, & Awards (SRGA) Committee who reviewed all of them. The Committee scored the CSI booths looking for alternative treatments and originality, technical appeal (poster legibility / video clarity) and educational value.

Three awards were given – 1st Place – $200 check and certificate, 2nd Place – $100 check and certificate and Best Practical Tip – certificate only.

The winners are:

1st Place – Rattapon Thuangtong, MD | Thailand

CSI-017: COVID-19 Era: Is There Any Aerosol Production During FUE harvesting?
