|Peter A.S. Johnstone, MD, professor of radiation oncology and hematology/oncology at the Emory University School of Medicine, has been inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Radiology (ACR). Dr. Johnstone was inducted in a formal ceremony on May 21, during the ACR's annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Johnstone, who also serves as director of the Cancer Survivorship Program at the Emory Winship Cancer Institute, is a Georgia Cancer Coalition Distinguished Scholar. He serves on various committees within the ACR, the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, the Society for Integrative Oncology, and the American Radium Society. Dr. Johnstone is the editor of Current Problems in Cancer, and has published more than 80 peer-reviewed articles as well as numerous review articles, abstracts, and book chapters.
Fellowship is one of the highest honors conferred by the ACR. While all ACR members are expected to maintain high standards, only about 10 percent of the members are selected for ACR Fellowship. Nominees are considered based on their service to organized medicine, their significant accomplishments in scientific or clinical research in the fields of radiology, radiation oncology or medical physics, their exemplary performance as teachers and their outstanding reputation among colleagues and the local community.
The ACR is a national nonprofit association serving more than 32,000 radiologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of radiology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
