ESGAR 2016: The excellence in the field of abdominal imaging

    Andrea Laghi

    On 14‒17 June 2016, Prague, the glamourous capital of the Czech Republic, hosted the annual meeting of ESGAR (European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology). Over 1400 delegates from all over the world attended the meeting, which provided, as usual, many new and interesting educational opportunities. To quote the words of ESGAR’s President, Prof. Celso Matos, “The ESGAR Annual Meeting is a reference medical conference aiming to provide a platform for science and education, bringing unique opportunities for debate and exchange of innovative ideas. In doing so, it strives to bridge gaps between the expansion of information and its implementation in clinical practice and to promote excellence in the field of abdominal imaging”. The meeting offered a blend of lecture sessions, interactive workshops, case-based discussions, hands-on training and scientific sessions. Its two leitmotivs were the terms “multidisciplinarity” and “interactivity”.
