Biography: Dr Peters' laboratory tackles problems related to Image-guided interventions. His lab is identifying brain pathologies through multi-spectral imaging and histology correlations and developing minimally-invasive heart surgery using ultrasound and augmented reality to repair structures in the beating heart! Other research aims to assist the safe delivery of anesthetic agents to critical regions such as the spine using Ultrasound and augmented reality, and the application of novel image processing approaches for prostate resection using the daVinci robot. All of these projects are supported by shared platforms of image segmentation, image registration, 3D-visualization, and instrument tracking.
Research Areas: Image-guided surgery; 3-D visualization, non-linear image warping, instrument tracking, multi-modality image registration, brain imaging, cardiac imaging, stereoscopic visualization, virtual reality
