Abstract Submission

Thank you very much for your submissions.
The notifications of acceptance/rejection were sent out to all presenters on February 14!


The ESGAR ANNUAL MEETING has become a platform for research exchange in the fields of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology and it offers a high standard educational and scientific programme.
The scientific programme, composed by the ESGAR 2022 Programme Committee, seeks to promote scientific excellence and inquiry, encourage individual and collective action of current research findings in diagnostic and interventional abdominal and GI radiology.
The ESGAR 2022 Programme Committee therefore welcomes abstract submissions of scientific and educational presentations for ESGAR 2022. Selected abstracts will be accepted for scientific (oral) presentations and for electronic poster presentation in order to ensure a balanced and representative scientific programme.

General information and guidelines

Scientific abstracts (Scientific Presentations and Scientific Posters) must be structured as follows:

  • Purpose
  • Materials and Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusion

Educational Poster abstracts must be structured as follows:

  • Learning objectives
  • Background
  • Imaging Findings or Procedure Details
  • Conclusion
  • Media files: brief and neutrally designed 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 presentations will be published online in a supplement to “Insights into Imaging”.

Further details will be made available in the online abstract submission system.

Notification of acceptance

Presenters of all abstract types will receive the notifications of acceptance via e-mail in February 2022. Presenters with accepted abstracts for posters will receive a link to the e-Poster system by e-mail, enabling them to upload their poster presentation(s) prior to the meeting. Presenters of scientific abstracts (oral) will also receive a link to the presentation system in due time before the virtual congress to upload their self-recorded presentation(s).
If you wish to withdraw your submission after having confirmed your acceptance, inform the Central ESGAR Office in writing (via e-mail) immediately.
Please note that all presenters need to register for the congress!

Presentations must be prepared using PowerPoint for PC. Macintosh presentations must be saved in PC format. Speakers must deliver their presentation to the Preview Centre on a separate, labelled USB stick (ZIP disks are not accepted) or upload the presentation on the ESGAR presentation platform (link will be provided to presenters in due time). Presenters are responsible for testing their presentation for compatibility at the Preview Centre at the congress venue before handing it in. Further details will be made available together with the notification of acceptance.

The best 20 abstracts, submitted by residents who appear as the first author on the respective abstract and who will actually present their paper during the virtual meeting, form the “ESGAR Top 20”. Authors will receive a diploma, confirming that their abstracts have received the best ratings among other abstracts submitted.

The best ESGAR Poster Presentations will be awarded a Diploma. The following prizes will be awarded: Magna Cum Laude, Cum Laude, and Certificates of Merit.
The evaluation will be performed by a committee and the awarded presentations will be flagged as such in the poster system online. Evaluation will be based on novelty, accuracy, educational value and design.
