ESGAR 2017 - European Society of Abdominal Radiology

ESGAR 2017

Twenty-seven years after the first ESGAR (ESGR) Meeting in Crete in 1990, Greece is proud to host ESGAR 2017 in Athens! Two unforgettable ESGAR meetings followed in 1996 and 2006, again in Crete under the meeting presidency of Prof. Nicholas Gourtsoyiannis. ESGAR 2017 returning to Greece underlines the long standing and strong ties between ESGAR and our country.

Year by year the ESGAR Annual Meeting has become more popular, more comprehensive, more innovative and more influential, while maintaining the two core characteristics of ESGAR: scientific quality and family atmosphere. The upcoming meeting in Athens builds on the success of previous ones, providing high quality education, demonstrating developments and innovations in abdominal diagnostic and interventional radiology, presenting research activities and facilitating exchange of experience and ideas.

The ESGAR 2017 Programme Committee Members have designed a new exciting programme. The Postgraduate Course, a major educational activity, on “Imaging the post-operative Abdomen” addresses the challenges in every day clinical practice when dealing with imaging evaluation of patients after surgery. The successful concept of Lecture Sessions, Plenary Sessions, different Workshops, the School of ESGAR (following the chapters from the European Training Curriculum), the Advanced US and the CT Colonography Centres covers a wide spectrum of topics and is adapted to different levels to meet the requirements of each participant, from the trainee to the highly dedicated specialist.
