Sara Lewis, MD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR (PENDING) | Radiology
- ASSISTANT CLINICAL PROFESSOR | Radiology
Dr. Lewis is an Assistant Professor of Radiology in the Body Imaging/Body MRI Section at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). After finishing residency in Diagnostic Radiology at ISMMS where she also served as Chief Resident, Dr. Lewis then went on to complete an additional year of sub-specialization in abdominal MRI and CT. She subsequently joined the Body Imaging Section in 2011 and the Quantitative Imaging Research Lab (PI: Taouli) in TMII in 2016. Dr. Lewis is actively involved in multiple areas of clinical research in abdominal imaging. Her work is focused on conducting clinical translational imaging research centered on the use of advanced MRI methods in characterizing hepatobiliary neoplasms, solid organ transplant dysfunction and prostate cancer. Dr. Lewis has received grant support from SAR (2015) and RSNA (2016) for imaging research.
Dr. Lewis has authored and co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and actively lectures around the country. She is a peer reviewer for multiple peer-reviewed imaging journals. Dr. Lewis is also actively involved in radiology resident education, serving as the chair of the Core Clinical Competency Committee and chair of the Program Evaluation Committee. She is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, Radiologic Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society and Society of Abdominal Radiology. She is board-certified by the American Board of Radiology in Diagnostic Radiology
