A platform for personal and scientific exchange, the ESGAR Annual Meeting has become the largest and most prestigious gastrointestinal (gI) radiology meeting in Europe. With its high standard education and scientific programme it is the best place to learn about the latest advances in the fields of gastrointestional and abdominal radiology. The Annual Meeting advances the study of gastrointestinal and abdominal imaging and intervention in Europe by encouraging radiological and clinical excellence, teaching and research. It will create links with abdominal radiologists from other continents and with other Societies in the field of abdominal surgery, gastroenterology and hepatology.

The 26th ESgAR Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course is held from June 9 – 12, 2015 in Paris, France. The ESgAR Programme Committee has put together an outstanding programme of new science in gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology.


Postgraduate Courses

The highlights of ESGAR 2015 will be the two Postgraduate Courses on Tuesday, June 09, 2015 on Magnetic resonance ofthe abdomen: from the protocol to the report and GI oncologic imaging: from diagnosis tointervention. Lecture sessions will address updates on rectal cancer imaging, the postoperative abdomen, inflammatory bowel disease, tumour respectability criteria, liver metastases and the paediatric abdomen.

Sessions and Worshops

There will also be interventional sessions on recent advances in hepatocellular carcinoma intervention, liver complications and management and practical biliary interventions as well as video case sessions. The programme is further enriched by interactive and innovative workshops on hot topics such as diffusion weighted imaging, contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and CT colonography.

School of ESGAR

Another major innovation is the newly developed School of ESGAR. T his i s a comprehensive list of lectures covering the programme of the European Training Curriculum and is dedicated to those who are close to their board examination. We believe that this innovation will accompany the increasing interest of radiologists in training for attending the ESGAR Annual Meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris!
