A Message from the President - May, 2016

Colleagues and Friends of the SAR,
 
It is my privilege and honor to serve as the 5th president of our burgeoning society. Formed four years ago from the merger of the Societies of Gastrointestinal and Urologic Radiology, we have doubled in size to over 1000 members and strengthened our annual scientific content with 450 abstracts submitted in 2016. The breadth of educational content continues to expand in these challenging times and our website and social media outreach is robust and evolving. While the expansion is impressive, what is most exciting is the high energy of our newest members who represent the future of our great specialty.
 
Playing to the strengths of our membership, which contains a large number of department chairs and thought leaders, we have developed a mentoring program and leadership track at our annual meeting. Members in training accepted to present during the Scientific Session can receive travel grants from the newly formed SAR fund. The SAR multidisciplinary Disease-Focused Panels continue to expand and promote best practices for the patients we serve. We continue our relationships with the European and Asian Abdominal Radiology Societies and plan an International Education Conference at the Brazilian Congress of Radiology in October... Click here to read more!
