Dear colleagues, dear friends,
It is a great honour for me as Meeting President of ESGAR 2023 and President of the Spanish Society of Radiology to welcome you to Valencia. It is the second time that our city hosts an ESGAR meeting after 2009. In 2023 the 34th ESGAR Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course will be held at the Valencia Conference Center.
The ESGAR 2023 Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course and its faculty of experts will provide participants not only with an in-depth overview of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology but it will also give an insight into cutting-edge technology in topics such as rectal cancer, IBD, HCC, liver cirrhosis, AI in abdominal radiology, elastography and screening strategy in abdominal conditions.
The Postgraduate course, titled “Fire in the Abdomen”, will focus on the inflammatory conditions that involve the abdomen. Educational activities will include Lecture Sessions, ESGAR tutorials, School of ESGAR, Cases of the Day and Nick Gourtsoyiannis’ Foundation Courses on rad-path correlation.
The venue that was built by the famous British architect, Sir Norman Foster, was awarded twice as the World Best Congress Venue. It is very well connected with the International Airport of Valencia and to Madrid via the highspeed train (Valencia-Madrid in only 1h:38 min!). The area surrounding the venue is well-equipped with hotels in walking distance and is connected by metro, taxi and busses to the city centre.
Valencia is a welcoming city, always ready to open its arms to people from abroad. In the past 20 years, Valencia, has become one of the most touristic destinations for Europeans, Asians and Americans due to the good weather, the city safety and the warm and open nature of the valencianos. We are a joyful and happy people who like living outdoors, celebrating the sharing of food and drinks and street parties (especially with fireworks). In other words, you will feel really welcome among us.
The 34th ESGAR Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course is approaching really fast, and we hope to meet and welcome you in Valencia in 2023!
Prof.Dr. Asunción Torregrosa Andrés
