17th Annual British Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (BSGAR) meeting

Dear Colleagues,

Please find attached details of the 17th Annual British Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (BSGAR) meeting to be held in Leeds (February 2015).  The lectures, to be delivered by leading GI radiologists across the UK, are varied with significant educational value to radiologists in training. The annual Richard Farrow Memorial Lecture will be given by Dr Giles Maskell (RCR President).

In addition to this there are two sessions which will have particular interest for SpRs:
1. The Derrick Martin Prize.
2. The Job Session: a meeting for SpRs looking for a GI Consultant job and for Consultants looking to recruit.

1. Derrick Martin Prize

The Derrick Martin Prize will be awarded for the best interesting case presented by a trainee at the meeting. The prize winner will receive a cash prize of £200. Submissions are now open – we are usually oversubscribed so the importance of early submission cannot be overemphasised! The session is one of the highlights of the meeting and is an excellent way to get yourself known by the GI radiology community. Presentations are 5 minutes long with 1 minute for questions, and are judged on style, content and impact on practice. The best 10 cases submitted will be presented at the meeting but other cases submitted will still be published on the BSGAR website.

Successful candidates will be contacted by email but please note that presentation places will only be confirmed with registration for the conference. We look forward to receiving your entries!

Please submit your case via

Please submit as a powerpoint presentation using the following template:

Presenting author email address:
Clinical Information: Brief summary/relevant past medical history
Figures: Selected images with legends
Final diagnosis: Include means of confirming diagnosis Key learning points:
Discussion: Pathophysiology, clinical findings, imaging findings etc.

The authors will need to have DICOM files of the case available, but do not need to include them at the time of submission.

2. Job Session

The Job Session is a new development and will be a meeting intended to help SpRs who are looking for jobs and Consultants looking for colleagues to meet each other. We have already had some confirmed interest from Consultants looking to recruit. Bring a copy of your CV if you are interested.

I hope you find the above of interest. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes
