Ronald Walker, M.D., professor of Clinical Radiology and Radiological Sciences, was named a fellow of the American College of Radiology (ACR) during the recent ACR Annual Meeting and Chapter Leadership conference in Washington, D.C.
Recognition as a fellow is one of the highest honors the ACR can bestow on a radiologist, radiation oncologist or medical physicist. ACR Fellows demonstrate a history of service to the college, organized radiology, teaching or research. Approximately 10 percent of ACR members achieve this distinction.
Walker, also a Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center investigator, is a staff radiologist and nuclear medicine physician for the Tennessee Valley VA Healthcare System.
The ACR is a national nonprofit association serving more than 34,000 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.
