ESGAR 2011

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is my honour and pleasure to invite you to attend the 22nd Annual Meeting of the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR), scheduled to take place from May 21 – 24, 2011 in Venice, Italy.

Esgar 2011The annual ESGAR meetings are a successful story, which lasts for more than 20 years already and which shows an increasing number of attendees every year, with more than 1000 participants in our last meetings in Florence, Crete, Lisbon, Istanbul and Valencia.
With no doubt the main reasons of this success story are the high quality of the educational and scientific programme together with the excellent performance of the speakers and moderators that are among the most involved in education and research in Europe and in the rest of the world. A smooth organisation, thanks to a close cooperation between the Local Organising Committee and the Central ESGAR Office in Vienna, will contribute to another outstanding meeting next 2011.

The 2011 Postgraduate Course will cover “Imaging and intervention of pancreatic diseases”. Seven years after the Meeting in Geneva (2004), where the postgraduate course was dedicated to pancreatic imaging and intervention, it is time to re-evaluate the role of emergent and consolidated imaging techniques and intervention in the pancreatic diseases. The most important radiologists and clinicians will be involved in discussing the setting of the imaging of pancreatic diseases: improvement of imaging techniques; imaging and intervention of acute and chronic pancreatitis, with both morphological and functional imaging for disease quantification; solid and cystic tumours, with special settings of emergent clinical techniques (CEUS; DWI; perfusion). Also clinical issues, important for a correct management of many pancreatic lesions will be covered. The scientific and educational programme will follow the successful concept of Lecture Sessions, Research Corner, Clinical Files (interactive case discussion), Foundation Courses, Interventional Sessions, Lunch Symposia, Workshops, Scientific Sessions, Cases of the Day and EPOS presentations. So don’t miss the opportunity to participate in the most complete and up-todate meeting on gastrointestinal radiology in 2011, not only by attending the meeting but also submitting scientific papers and posters to be part of this unique faculty.

Moreover, don’t forget that this meeting will be held in Venice. Venice, already known as “La Serenissima Repubblica”, has been described as “undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by men”. It stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon. During its long lasting history (starting from about 500 a.c.), Venice has always been a leading centre in all human fields, from economics to art. This resulted in an incredible accumulation of sights in a single city: more than 120 churches, each a masterpiece of architecture, more than 30 museums, 354 bridges, with every single canal flowing slowly in a unique environment that makes Venice Europe’s largest urban car free area. Although its worldwide recognition as one of the most important cultural and artistic places, if you avoid the most touristic zones, you will breath the atmosphere of ancient Venice, with its silence and beautiful small streets (“calle”) where people walk in a timeless way, in a rhythm that is more similar to old centuries than to our rushed life.

The friendly setting of ESGAR meeting in the unique city of Venice will make the exchange of experience smooth, easy and pleasant.

I hope to welcome you to ESGAR 2011 in Venice.

Dr. Giovanni Morana
Meeting President, ESGAR 2011
