The 4th Annual Global Embolization Symposium and Technologies (GEST) conference, the original and largest embolization meeting, will take place this May 6 – 9, 2010 in San Francisco, California at the Westin Market Street Hotel.
Held in partnership with the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), this is GEST’s fourth edition and the first to be held in the United States.
“As the leading innovative and comprehensive forum for embolization science and education, we are looking forward to bringing GEST to San Francisco, a city known internationally for its physical beauty, diversity and cultural resources and conference facilities,” said Ziv Haskal, one of the three co-founders of GEST. “This year’s event will once again feature a large international expert faculty, as well as attendees from all corners of the world, including many from the Eastern Hemisphere. Their participation is an integral part of delivering the global and unique GEST experience.”
The three Directors of GEST, Drs. Jafar Golzarian, Marc Sapoval and Ziv Haskal, founded the meeting with the mission of bringing practitioners the highest level of scientific and technical education on embolization, including new materials and devices, results, relevance for patient care and imaging. Participants will also have the opportunity to fine-tune existing skills and expertise in these areas in the most innovative and dynamic method possible.
Covering all disciplines of embolization, GEST 2010 will build upon the success of the past three years’ events, merging signature live demonstrations, Master Classes, Hands-On attendee events, in-depth technical sessions, evidence-based reviews, satellite symposia, research presentations and case-based teaching.
The GEST Meeting is the original and largest embolization meeting and the only event to focus on a truly global and unique educational experience. It delivers total educational and professional know-how, by merging signature live demonstrations, Master Classes, Hands-On attendee events, in-depth technical sessions, evidence-based reviews, research presentations, and case-based teaching. After three successful meetings in Europe, including Paris and Barcelona, which drew thousands of total attendees from over 70 different countries, the meeting is coming to San Francisco from May 6 – 9, 2010.
