ACVR Welcomes New Editor-in-Chief of VRU Journal

Dr. Eric T. Hostnik takes over for Dr. Jeryl Jones as the fourth editor-in-chief of the Journal.

After an extensive search, the American College of Veterinary Radiology is excited to announce Eric T. Hostnik, DVM, MS, DACVR-DI, DACVR-EDI, as the new Editor-in-Chief of Veterinary Radiology & Ultrasound on Saturday, July 1, 2023.

Dr. Hostnik completed his residency at Ohio State University, where he currently holds a tenured associate professor position in their College of Veterinary Medicine. In addition to being double boarded in radiology and equine diagnostic imaging, Dr. Hostnik also has experience as an author, associate editor for the Journal, and served as an organizing editor/author for an upcoming textbook.

“I am thrilled and deeply honored to accept the position of Editor-in-Chief for Veterinary Radiology & Ultrasound.” Hostnik said about his appointment. “I am excited about the responsibility entrusted to me and eager to lead our journal.”

Dr. Hostnik begins his tenure as the fourth Editor-in-Chief in the 63-year history of Veterinary Radiology & Ultrasound. Dr. Jeryl Jones, who has served in the role for the last 11 years, is assisting with his transition after announcing that she will be stepping down at the end of 2023.

“It has truly been an honor serving as the third Editor-in-Chief for Veterinary Radiology & Ultrasound, and I look forward to working with Dr. Eric Hostnik as the fourth Editor-in-Chief,” Jones said. “With Eric’s leadership and the continuing support of VRU Editorial Board and ACVR members, the Journal has a very bright future.”
