Wei Lu, PhD

Associate Attending Physicist


University of Missouri

I am an associate attending medical physicist in the Clinical Physics Service of the Department of Medical Physics. We work closely with the Department of Radiation Oncology to design radiotherapy treatment plans and to deliver safe treatments to patients. 

My research interests include PET/CT for cancer diagnosis and response evaluation, image-guided radiation therapy, 4D-CT for tumor motion compensation, and medical image analysis. I work closely with physicians, physicists, computer scientists, and others in developing new techniques to improve patient care.

I received my PhD in biological engineering from the University of Missouri in 2003. I completed postdoctoral training and medical physics residency at Washington University in St. Louis in 2010.
