Dr. Qianyi Xu is a board-certified Medical Physicist at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper and Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology at Cooper Medical School at Rowan University. He received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Arizona in Tucson and completed his Medical Physics residency at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. He has been working at Cooper since 2010.
Dr. Xu is the lead physicist of Cooper’s CyberKnife and Gamma Knife programs. His research interests include treatment planning for SBRT/SRS patients, image guidance for SBRT, tumor motion management and application of fiducials in SBRT. In 2016, he had the highest score in the CyberKnife category of the AAMD/RSS Plan Study competition.
