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.
“Young ESGAR (YE)”, an exciting initiative to promote active participation of young members within the vibrant ESGAR community. The main goal of Young ESGAR is to generate a forum of enthusiastic young members to represent the interests of young residents, radiologists and researchers within ESGAR. We aim to create an informal and interactive platform to network, exchange ideas and help shape the future of ESGAR.
Since the launch in 2019 over 100 young ESGAR members from more than 25 different countries worldwide have joined Young ESGAR and now form a dynamic community.
Aims of the Society
The European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) is a not-for-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.
