Whether it be education for practicing physicians or industry partnerships through consulting efforts, The GEST Group is the premier resource for interventional radiology and interventional oncology.

“GEST Symposium annually attracts with its global perspective on endovascular therapies. Excellent opportunities to attend master-class lectures, participate in embolization workshops, and get to know some of the most prominent IR physicians during the small-group discussions. The conference takes its pride in actively engaging residents and students involving them in the development of the program and offering a podium to present at the case conferences. Love being a part of the inspiring GEST community!”
