Peter Edic received a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University, and MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). His thesis topic at RPI was the development of the world's first, real-time Electrical Impedance Tomograph. This project allowed him to realize his passion - to be involved in all aspects of system development: data collection, system interface electronics, image reconstruction, and image presentation.
Pete joined GE Research in 1995, focusing his efforts on development of advanced technologies for Computed Tomography (CT). During that time, he developed algorithms and systems for next-generation CT imaging – both for medical and industrial applications. These investigations include R&D of volumetric CT systems for part inspection, the first cardiac CT reconstruction algorithms for multi-slice CT, novel volumetric cardiac reconstruction algorithms, systems and algorithms for whole-organ perfusion assessment in a pre-clinical setting, fully-stationary CT imaging, technology for the detection of explosives in checked luggage, and methods for dual-energy data analysis.
He is a co-PI on two NIH grants: "High Dose Efficiency CT" and "Dual-Energy CT for Determining Coronary Lesion-specific Ischemia", and has over 75 granted patents. He also is an Adjunct Professor at SUNY Polytechnic Institute - teaching courses in Electrical Engineering for over 10 years.
