LCSR Seminar: Terry Peters “A journey in Image-guided Intervention”
This presentation overviews a number of the projects related to image-guided intervention that have taken place in my lab at the Robarts Research Institute at Western University in recent years. Projects cover applications in Image-guided Neurosurgery, Cardiac surgery, as well as the role of simulation phantoms and technologies as motion magnification and mixed reality in image-guided interventions.
Dr. Terry Peters is a Scientist in the Imaging Research Laboratories at the Robarts Research Institute, London, ON, Canada, and is Professor Emeritus in the Departments of Medical Imaging and Medical Biophysics, and the School of Biomedical Engineering, at Western University. He obtained his PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch NZ, in the field image reconstruction for CT in 1974, and following some time as a Medical Physicist at the Christchurch Hospital, joined the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University as a research scientist in 1978. In 1997 he joined the Imaging Research Labs at the Robarts Research Institute at Western University in London Canada, where he expanded his research focus to encompass image-guided procedures in multiple organ systems. He has authored over 350 peer-reviewed papers, books and book chapters, and has mentored over 100 trainees.
