QNotes, Vol. 6, Issue 7
Qmetrics’ Senior Medical Scientist, Joshua M. Farber, MD, recently was invited to serve as a Special Advisor to the Editor-in-Chief, Jeffrey Klein, MD, of the RadioGraphics Editorial Board. RadioGraphics is a bimonthly journal published by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The journal is devoted to continuing medical education in radiology. Dr. Farber’s term will run from March 2017 through the conclusion of the 2019 RSNA Annual Meeting.
In this position, for which Dr. Farber will be listed on the masthead, he will work to improve the clinical relevancy of appropriate published articles. He hopes to have clinically relevant articles include material concerning structured reporting. If the initiative is successful, elements of a structured report specific to the disease process under consideration will be published. Dr. Farber and the RadioGraphics team also hope to develop and implement a tie-in with the RSNA repository of existing structured report.
“It’s a great honor for Dr. Farber and for Qmetrics to have him serve in this capacity with RadioGraphics,” commented Edward Schreyer, CEO, Qmetrics. “It further establishes him as a respected radiologist, recognized worldwide by his colleagues. Qmetrics is grateful to have a physician of his caliber on our team.”
Dr. Farber is a board certified radiologist with nearly 20 years of clinical experience. He received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania and was a resident in radiology at New York University. He completed two formal fellowships, one in MSK radiology at New York University and one in MRI at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Farber’s last academic position was Vice-Chair of Clinical Affairs at Indiana University, but he continues to pursue his research interests. Recently, he has published abstracts and peer-reviewed articles on articular cartilage segmentation, with a focus on clinical applications. In addition to his work with Qmetrics, he remains active in MSK and MRI society work. He has been on numerous program committees for the ISMRM, RSNA and SSR. Dr. Farber reviews manuscripts for six peer-reviewed journals, and reviews abstracts for the ISMRM and RSNA annual meetings. For more information on Dr. Farber’s publications, click here.
