European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) 29th Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course is organized by European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) and will be held during Jun 12 - 15, 2018 at Convention Centre Dublin, Dublin, Leinster, Ireland.
The ESGAR Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course has become the largest and most prestigious GI radiology meeting worldwide and a platform for personal and scientific exchange. It offers high standard education and is the best place to learn about the latest advances in the fields of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology. The Annual Meeting advances the study of gastrointestinal and abdominal imaging and intervention in Europe by encouraging radiological and clinical excellence, teaching and research. It will create links with abdominal radiologists from other continents and with other Societies in the field of abdominal surgery, gastroenterology and hepatology. International experts will present the latest developments, case studies and research results.
The four day meeting will cover the full range of topics in abdominal imaging as well as intervention and is aimed at subspecialist abdominal GI radiologists, general radiologists, radiologists in training as well as medical students. The theme of the Postgraduate Course on Day 1 will be 'Multidisciplinary Management of Common GI and Abdominal Malignancies' with lectures given by a panel of highly respected international speakers.

The ESGAR Annual Meeting has become a platform for research and educational exchange in the fields of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology and it offers high standard education as well as a diverse scientific programme.
The ESGAR 2018 Programme Committee seeks to promote scientific excellence and inquiry and encourages individual and collective action of current research findings in diagnostic and interventional abdominal and GI radiology. Selected abstracts will be accepted for oral presentations or for electronic poster presentation to ensure a balanced and representative scientific programme.
Scientific abstracts (Oral Presentations and Scientific Poster Presentations) must be structured as follows:
Materials and Methods
Educational Poster abstracts must be structured as follows:
Imaging Findings or Procedure Details
Media files: brief PowerPoint presentation (max. 3-4 slides) summarising the Educational Poster
Abstracts longer than 250 words will not be accepted by the system.
Projects can only be submitted in one presentation category. Posters already on the Poster database may not be re-submitted to ESGAR. Accepted scientific oral presentations will be published online in a supplement to “Insights into Imaging”. Details will be made available in the online abstract submission system.
ESGAR abstract review and grading
The Programme Committee recognises that the ESGAR scientific programme has been the equal of any other radiology programme in the past but wishes to improve it further. Most diagnostic radiology research presented at ESGAR comprises evaluation of the technical and diagnostic performance of imaging methods and pictorial essays / radiologic-pathologic correlation. Interventional radiology research is also presented. A large panel of sub-specialist expert radiologists will grade submitted abstracts within their area of expertise. While expert opinion is crucial, objective criteria have also been formulated to help reviewers identify the best-designed and strongest studies as well as the best analysed data in these categories.
Abstracts are scored out of a maximum of 10 points. In 2017, most of accepted abstracts scored from 4.0 to 8.67 points. Abstracts that scored less than 3.5 were unlikely to be accepted (in total 38 % of abstracts were rejected). The “Guidelines for Abstract Reviewers” explain the objective criteria that will be used for abstract scoring. Simple spreadsheet calculators (diagnostic and interventional) can be downloaded by authors to help them to prepare their results. View also the “Tips for better abstract writing”. These will facilitate the calculation of basic statistical indices (sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, confidence intervals etc.) from raw data. We suggest that you use these resources during study design, data analysis and abstract writing between November and January to improve your chances of acceptance. Doing this will help you to improve scientific abstracts, maximising both your chances of acceptance for ESGAR 2018 and the final chance of publication and impact of your hard work. Submitted abstracts can be edited directly on the Internet until the deadline.
