The city of Dreams! Having evolved gradually from being the Garden city to the Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore is India’s third-largest city. Bangalore is loved for its pleasant weather, beautiful parks and lakes all around the town.

ISGAR is a vibrant community that has successfully cultivated the subspecialty of abdominal radiology within the Indian subcontinent. The leadership and members need to be commended on high level of achievement in a relatively short period of time, including the establishment of the JGAR. It is not trivial bringing together people practicing the subspecialty of abdominal radiology, organizing a structured national level conference as well as having a journal that furthers the mission of the society. I pray and sincerely wish the society continues to grow with ever-expanding membership and escalates the level of abdominal radiology both in India and abroad.
