Qihui Lyu, PhD (PGY-1)

Dr. Lyu received her bachelor's degree in physics from Nanjing University in China, and came to the United States to pursue her PhD in Medical Physics at UCLA. She has active research on CT reconstruction, dual-energy CT material decomposition, VMAT optimization, 4pi radiotherapy, FLASH radiotherapy, etc. Dr. Lyu developed treatment planning optimization algorithms that lift restrictions in clinical radiotherapy to improve tumor coverage and normal tissue sparing. She is a member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), serving on the Science Council Associates Mentorship Program (SCAMP) and the task group for FLASH (ultra-high dose rate) radiation dosimetry.
