Calendar Year 2021


Dear Doctor

Thank you for considering a membership at ISGAR!

ISGAR was formed in Sep 2016, with an aim to improve diagnostic and therapeutic skills in Abdominal Radiology, by providing a common platform of interaction to develop best practice guidelines, through educational and research activities and interdisciplinary collaboration, in order to improve patient care.

We are honoured to have many veterans in the field of Abdominal Radiology at ISGAR. Run by a passionate and experienced Governing Council, ISGAR encourages you to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and experience available here. It also serves as a great platform to facilitate making your own contribution to this challenging discipline, individually and collaboratively.

In the interest of building this community and making a difference to Abdominal Radiology in the Indian context, we have waived off membership fees for all membership types for the first year.

With Excitement,

Dr Rochita Venkataramanan

isgar president
