Biography

Dana C. Peters received her undergraduate degree in Physics at the Johns Hopkins University, her PhD in Physics at University of Wisconsin, Madison. Her postdoc was at NIH, NHLBI, working in the laboratory of cardiac energetics. Since then, she was Assistant Professor of Medicine at Havard Medical School, working at the BIDMC Cardiac MR Center. Currently, she is Associate Professor in Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at Yale and responsible for body and cardiac MR at the Magnetic Resonance Research Center. Her expertise is in cardiovascular MR, obtained during the last seven years working with cardiologists to improve detection of heart disease. This work has led to new frontiers in the application MRI in electrophysiology, through demonstrating that scar can be visualized in the left atrium, due to RF ablation, or due to structural remodeling pre-ablation. She is continuing in these directions, with research to investigate the arrhythmic substrate in the left atrium in patients with atrial fibrillation, and the grey zone regions of infarct in patients with ventricular tachycardia, using MRI.
