Terry Peters, PhD, has received the 2014 MICCAI Enduring Impact Award at the MICCAI annual conference this month.
Peters, a researcher at Robarts Research Institute, was recognized for pioneering contributions in CT imaging and for bringing computer-assisted intervention (CAI) techniques to clinical practice.
The Enduring Impact Award is the Society’s highest award for scientists whose careers have changed the field. The prize is awarded to an individual who has made an enduring mark on the field by opening up new areas of research with high clinical impact, making significant contributions to scholarship, and supporting young researchers.
The MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Interventions) Society's annual conference is the premier international conference in medical image processing, robotic surgery, and image-guided surgery using augmented reality and virtual reality. This year, the event took place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, USA.
