Carol H. Lee, MD named as The Radiology Industry’s “Cream of the Crop”

Carol H. Lee, MD, Professor of Diagnostic Radiology at Yale University School of Medicine, and Chair of the Breast Imaging Commission of the American College of Radiology (ACR), is named as the #2 leading Women’s Imaging Specialist in the April 2007 issue of Medical Imaging magazine.

The second annual Medical Imaging Industry Top 10 honors professionals whose knowledge is judiciously incorporated into practice—improving the lives of countless people with cutting edge techniques, industry interaction, and problem-solving abilities. In response to an e-mail survey and an online poll, more than 600 readers cast ballots to recognize their hardworking colleagues in a range of categories.

Active in several professional organizations, Lee relishes her opportunities to give back to the specialty. She is a case reviewer for the ACR Stereotaxic Biopsy Accreditation Program (since 1996), a member of the ACR Committee on Mammography, Interpretive Self-Assessment (since 1999), and a manuscript reviewer for both Radiology and AJR (since 2001). Lee is president-elect of the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI), and serves on the ACR board of chancellors. She will leverage these and her other roles to advance the performance and delivery of breast imaging services and to help support breast imaging and breast imagers.

"Of all of my accomplishments, I am most proud of the ongoing relationships I have developed with my patients over the years," she says. "[I also am proud] of the residents and fellows who have trained in our program who have gone on to be successful in women's imaging careers of their own."
