One of the highest honors the ACR can bestow on a member in good standing is recognition as a Fellow of the American College of Radiology.
ACR Fellows demonstrate a history of service to the College, organized radiology, teaching, and/or research. Only 10 percent of College members have been awarded this honor. Fellowship is awarded to diagnostic radiologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, medical physicists, and nuclear medicine physicians at the Convocation held during the ACR annual meeting. Every year the Wisconsin Radiological Society nominates candidates to the ACR. The degree of Fellow of the American College of Radiology (FACR) has been conferred on the following Wisconsin radiologists who have been approved and elected by the ACR Board of Chancellors:
