Dr. Peter is a chief consultant and associate professor at the Division of Rheumatology, Medical University of Vienna, Austria, a EULAR Centre of Excellence, and member of the EULAR Network of Imaging Research Centers.
After graduating with honors from Semmelweis University, Budapest he completed his doctorate in functional neuroscience with honors at the Nathan Kline Institute in Orangeburg, New York, and Semmelweis University, Budapest.
His research interests include imaging for diagnosing, monitoring, and predicting rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases, particularly the utility of ultrasound for monitoring inflammation and structural changes in rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and osteoarthritis.
In addition, Dr. Peter performs comparative imaging research using cadavers, histology, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound to better understand the anatomical and histological basis of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. I have convened and am currently assembling several EULAR and OMERACT taskforces focused on various aspects of imaging.
He has published over 80 peer-reviewed publications in rheumatology and musculoskeletal imaging with an H-index of 28 and a textbook on the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound for the hand. Dr. Peter has organized and served on the faculty of several national and international musculoskeletal ultrasound courses and workshops.
