A Message from the President - May 27, 2015

Greetings SAR members and friends,

It is indeed a true honor to serve as President of this society. It has been approximately 3 years since the merger of the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists and the Society of Uroradiology and I am happy to report that the SAR is thriving. The vibrancy of the SAR was clearly palpable at this past annual meeting. We had many new members in attendance reflecting the impressive growth of the society and the great attraction of the annual meeting. Many attendees remarked about the high level of science evident in the oral abstract presentations and how much they learned from the outstanding plenary talks and the workshop sessions.  We also had four successful well-attended Hands-on workshops (CT Colonography, Dual Energy CT, Advanced Prostate MRI, and Advanced Small Bowel Imaging) all of which will be held again next year.
