After its successful congress in 2009 at the Conference Centre, the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) is back for its big annual meeting.
The ESGAR 2023 event is the largest abdominal meeting in the world. Made up of experts in radiology who work closely with specialists in gastroenterology, hepatology, abdominal surgery and pathology, this society holds a major annual meeting, which receives numerous participants from Asia, Australia and America. However, at this year’s event, mainly due to the limitations following the pandemic, most of the participants will come from the UK, the Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, Spain and, in general, from all over Europe. More than 2,000 people will share ideas and knowledge at the Valencia Conference Centre from 13 to 16 June 2023.
The president of the meeting, Prof. Dr. Asunción Torregrosa, head of the Abdominal Radiology department in the Clinical Area of Medical Imaging at the Hospital Universitari i Politècnic La Fe de València emphasizes that this event allows to abdominal radiologists sharing their knowledge in those diseases that involve the abdomen, and that radiologists non-expert in abdomen and trainees strengthen the right radiological management of the main important abdominal tumors and conditions such as rectal, hepatic and pancreatic tumors. Besides, artificial intelligence applications in abdominal radiology, mainly in cancer, will be included in the lectures as cutting-edge approach.
On the first day, the congress will host the postgraduate course called “Fire in the Abdomen” and on the remaining days, up to seven parallel sessions will be held, where all topics related to diagnostic imaging and interventional treatment of abdominal conditions (cirrhosis, biliary inflammation, pancreatitis, peritonitis, abdominal oncology), as well as their challenges and treatment, will be discussed.
In addition to Valencia’s large community of specialists in radiology, the organisers highlight the city’s climate, the perfect suitability of the building for the format of the event and previous experience as some of the reasons why Valencia and the Conference Centre have once again been chosen as the venue for the event after fourteen years.
The event will feature digital technology for the presentation of posters, allowing online viewing and the sending of selected material to individual email addresses.
