The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) named Richard G. Barr, MD, PhD, as the next editor-in-chief of the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine.
"We are excited to have someone with Dr Barr's knowledge and expertise as the next editor of the JUM," said AIUM President Brian Coley, MD. "We know that Dr Barr will build on JUM's success and continue to represent all areas of medical ultrasound."
Barr is assistant chairman of the department of radiology at Northside Medical Center and president of Radiology Consultants Inc., both in Youngstown, Ohio. He received his PhD from Michigan State University and an MD from Case Western Reserve.
"I look forward to serving as editor-in-chief for the JUM," said Barr. "My predecessors have done an excellent job creating an international journal for all ultrasound subspecialties. I hope to continue this great work while increasing the readership and quality of the content."
