Who we are

Please let us introduce “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.
