As an international professional and scientific society, ESGAR strongly encourages its members to contribute to this advancement and to healthcare in general. In ESGAR’s vision, research provokes critical-thinking and develops problem-solving skills. It enhances our visibility both within academic circles and amongst the wider healthcare community. Research appeals to the brightest residents, fellows and staff radiologists. It attracts industry support and governmental funds, and influences healthcare financing.

The ESGAR Research Map aims to interconnect ESGAR members by improving the visibility of research lines and topics of ESGAR members in various European institutions. Details provided include principal investigator(s), research topic(s) and departmental websites / personal contact details, where available.
