Carol H. Lee, MD

I am a diagnostic radiologist specializing in all areas of breast imaging including screening and diagnostic mammography, ultrasound, and MRI. I also perform all types of image-guided breast biopsies and localizations.

Prior to joining Memorial Sloan Kettering, I was chief of breast imaging at Yale University for more than 10 years. I am a Fellow of the Society of Breast Imaging and served as its president. I was also the first chair of the Commission on Breast Imaging of the American College of Radiology and served as Vice President of that organization. I have also served on the National Mammography Quality Assurance Advisory Committee which assists the FDA in formulating regulations that ensure high standards for quality mammography 

Currently, I am chair of the Communications Committee of the Breast Imaging Commission of the American College of Radiology. In that capacity I have been interviewed by various media outlets including ABC news, the New York Times, NPR, and the Washington Post about issues related to breast imaging. In addition to my ongoing clinical work, I continue to teach residents and fellows in breast imaging and lecture around the world on breast imaging topics.
