Welcome Message

Dr. Rochita Venkataramanan
ISGAR President

I extend a warm welcome to all who are interested in Abdominal Radiology for our first annual conference. This conference will address basic as well as advanced imaging topics. It will benefit both students as well as consultants in this field. Physicians as well as surgical gastroenterologists would also be benefited by our detailed lectures and case discussions. Several Radio-clinical case based discussions have been planned with leading surgeons and physicians. Pathology inputs are also being arranged by eminent pathologists. Didactic lectures will help understand the patho-anatomy and physiology of difficult disease conditions and how to interpret them for better patient outcomes. “How I do it” sessions from expert radiologists will teach about techniques of scanning. A comparison of conventional vs advanced procedures will help understand how imaging has evolved. Pitfalls and limitations of procedures and signs will be discussed.
A large number of oral paper presentations is being arranged. Please submit your abstracts. Compete for the ISGAR medals for the best paper.
Opportunity to present published work in this field is also being considered. Please write to us attaching your article and CV.
