ESGAR, based in Vienna, is a non-profit, educational and scientific organisation founded by radiologists working in close association with gastroenterologists, hepatologists, abdominal surgeons, pathologists, and other allied specialists. Its members have a special interest in the imaging and treatment of patients with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and associated abdominal organs.
The annual congress, the most important event of the society’s calendar, consists of invited educational lectures, workshops, scientific presentations and satellite symposia structured in conjunction with industrial partners.
“Early diagnosis of malignant diseases of the liver, pancreas, colon and generally the organs in the abdominal cavity was one of the strong themes of the entire congress. Radiology has an extremely important role in the early detection of these diseases. Rational use of modern expensive technologies, combined with efforts to protect patients from unnecessary radiation exposure was another of the important topics of ESGAR 2016,” added Prof. Válek. These specifications of the scientific program express a crucial role of radiology as the field in revealing both oncological and non-oncological diseases.
C-IN organisationally supported the 2016 edition of ESGAR with registration assistance, technical support and other DMC services. Thanks to the successful involvement in ESGAR 2016, the cooperation on a long-term basis has been already settled and we are looking forward to further development.
