After his retirement in 1976, he continued as a part-time radiologist from 1981-1983. "His work was a major factor in reducing the incidence of hip dysplasia in dogs." Professor Geary authored over 25 scientific papers, many of which were on linear tomography and imaging of spinal diseases, particularly traumatic injuries. He was an excellent teacher and accumulated an extensive collection of radiographic slides that covered all aspects of veterinary radiology which were valuable for teaching purposes.
