The Portuguese Group of Ultrasound in Gastroenterology (GRUPUGE), founded in 1991 represents a Specialised Section of the Portuguese Society of Gastroenterology (SPG).

The scope of GRUPUGE is linked to issues related to Ultrasonography, either Digestive Ultrasound, or Endoscopic Ultrasound, in their diagnostic and therapeutic/intervention aspects.

This is one of the sections of the Portuguese Society of Gastroenterology with the wider history and its prestige has been recognized both nationally and internationally.

The GRUPUGE represents even the link between the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and the scientific community related to the national Ultrasounds.
