Tian Liu

Tian Lu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Emory University School of Medicine, where she also acts as Director of Medical Physics. Her research largely concerns the development and application of novel imaging technology in cancer diagnosis/treatment. This work has produced results such as a novel imaging technique that quantitatively assesses normal-tissue effects in cancer therapy. Lu also works in a clinical setting in her oversight role at four Emory hospitals, where she reviews and works to improve clinical procedures. Other research contributions include theoretical models that describe the interaction between ultrasound waves and biological tissue.
