Focused ultrasound pioneer Dr. Wladyslaw Gedroyc has been named Clinical Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Therapeutic Ultrasound (JTU), replacing start-up editor Dr. Arik Hananel.
A consultant radiologist, Dr. Gedroyc is recognized worldwide as a pioneer in the development of noninvasive patient treatments using MR-guided focused ultrasound. Much of Dr. Gedroyc's ground-breaking work involved the treatment of uterine fibroids, pancreatic tumors, and liver tumors. He is currently investigating a focused ultrasound application to alleviate the severe back pain associated with facet joint disease.
JTU, the official publication of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound and the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, is published by BioMed Central, a division of Springer and the science, technology, and medicine publisher that pioneered the open access publishing model. Open access to research is essential to ensure the rapid and efficient communication of research findings, and all original research articles published by BioMed Central are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication.
