The SAR 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting and Educational Course brings together outstanding educators for a program highlighting:

  • Use of new and emerging technologies in the imaging diagnosis of abdominal and pelvic pathology
  • Problem solving for common issues in abdominal and pelvic imaging with practical solutions
  • Extensive small group workshop presentations allowing registrants to individualize the educational content

The course format utilizes didactic lectures, general interest presentations, panel discussions, technical displays and interactive workshops in a mix that optimizes the educational opportunities for registrants. The Scientific Paper Sessions of the Society will be open to all members. Numerous educational and scientific posters spanning all aspects of abdominal imaging will be available to all course participants for study throughout the meeting. Designed primarily for radiologists in practice and in training, this course will also benefit all physicians who care for patients with gastrointestinal and genitourinary disease.


At the conclusion of the meeting, registrants should be able to:

  1. Apply the most up-to-date and practical information for imaging diagnosis and intervention in common abdominal problems
  2. Appropriately implement new and emerging techniques in abdominal CT, MR, US and PET
  3. Successfully manage common problems encountered in performing everyday abdominal examinations
  4. Understand the newest topics and results in clinical research in abdominal radiology
