News: Dr. Farrelly named associate editor for Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound

Nov 20, 2013

At the 2013 ACVR meeting in October in Savannah, Georgia, our radiation oncologist/medical oncologist Dr. John Farrelly was named as an associate editor for the journal, Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound.  This journal serves as one of the most influential sources of information for primary research on the use of radiation therapy for treating cancer as well as diagnostic imaging in all animals.  This volunteer position is a new one, which was created to ensure that the journal continues to focus on publishing the most relevant and important studies on the treatment of pets with radiation.

When asked about this position, Dr. Farrelly commented, “As the associate editor for Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound my hope is that I will be able to help select studies for the journal that will provide the highest level of knowledge on how we should diagnose and treat cancer in animals.”

“Working at the Veterinary Cancer Center not only allows me to provide cutting edge care for patients with cancer.  It also allows me to play a role in research.  It is crucial that we continue to learn the safest and best ways to treat our patients with cancer and as associate editor I hope that it will be one more way that I can contribute to that process”
