The ESGAR Annual Meeting has evolved into a global platform for sharing research in gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology. It offers a high-quality educational and scientific programme. The programme, created by the ESGAR 2024 Programme Committee, promotes excellent scientific research and encourages the sharing of the latest findings in diagnostic and interventional abdominal and GI radiology.
With a commitment to inclusivity and representation on a global scale, the ESGAR 2024 Programme Committee invites the submission of abstracts for scientific and educational presentations. These submissions will be reviewed, and selected abstracts will have the opportunity to shine through scientific (oral) presentations or electronic poster presentations, ensuring a well-rounded and diverse scientific program that resonates with radiologists from around the world.
SUBMISSON IS OPEN NOW UNTIL THE DEADLINE ON JANUARY 15, 23:59 CET.
Postgraduate Course The pattern matters

Name badges will be mailed to participants who register until the second deadline. In case you do not receive your badge in the mail please visit the registration counter at the venue upon your arrival. Participants with a badge on hand may proceed to the fastlane registration.
Filming and photography
We would like to inform you that there may be filming and photography during the annual meeting. A photo gallery with all photos taken during the congress will be available to registered participants on the ESGAR platform. In addition, photographs taken during ESGAR 2024 may be used for the society's social media channels.
How to get to the venue
The best way to get to the Svenska Mässan from Landvetter Airport is to take the Airport Bus. This bus leaves every 20minutes between 04:30 and 20:30 and only takes 25 minutes to reach the congress centre (and Gothia Towers hotel).
Lead retrieval system
Your name badge is your business card. ESGAR and its sponsors are using a lead retrieval system during the congress. In practice that means that when you present your badge for scanning at an exhibition booth or for scanning when entering an industry sponsored lunch symposium, the following personal data can be retrieved: first name, last name, address details, email address.
