We study incoherent DVCS on He-4 in the He-4(e.e'gamma p)X reaction, which probes possible medium-modifications of the bound nucleon GPDs and elastic form factors. Assuming that the bound nucleon GPDs are modified in proportion to the corresponding bound nucleon elastic form factors, as predicted in the quark-meson coupling model, we develop an approach to calculate various incoherent nuclear DVCS observables. As an example, we compute the beam-spin DVCS asymmetry, and predict the x(B)- and t-dependence of the ratio of the bound to free proton asymmetries, A(LU)(p*)(phi)/A(LU)(p)(phi). We find that the deviation of AP(LU)(p*)(phi)/A(LU)(p)(phi) from unity is as Much as similar to 6%. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
