BiographyLT Booth is an Assistant Professor and serves as the Associate Program Director for Anesthesiology at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth. He received his bachelor’s degree (Magna Cum Laude) in Biomedical Engineering with a focus in Bioelectric Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2010. His capstone project involved application of computer vision techniques to CT images.
LT Booth attended Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine through HPSP. After graduating medical school in 2014, he completed a categorical Anesthesiology residency at Northwestern University through NADDS. In his final year of residency, he was selected as a Chief Resident. During residency, he was awarded the Dr. A. Lawrence and Ellen S. Wilson Award for Advancing Clinical Education through Innovation for creating a microcontroller-driven arterial pump simulator, the rights to which were subsequently released to him through the Innovations and New Ventures Office at Northwestern University. He created numerous videos and recorded lectures, and created a database of high-impact papers in anesthesiology for trainees in his program.
LT Booth joined the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth Anesthesiology Department as staff in 2018. He serves as a voting member of the Institutional Review Board, Supervision Champion for the Clinical Learning Environment Review subcommittee, and the Academic and Research coordinator for the Department of Anesthesiology. He is actively engaged in numerous research projects. He co-developed a novel, non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring system which is currently undergoing evaluation in an animal model and is the Principle Investigator on a follow up study (pending IACUC approval) which has been funded by the Combat Trauma Research Group. He is investigating methods for applying artificial intelligence algorithms to hemodynamics and clinical risk prediction models.
