Karen A Lee, MD

  • ASSISTANT CLINICAL PROFESSOR | Diagnostic, Molecular and Interventional Radiology


Radiology, Breast Imaging

I am a board-certified, fellowship trained radiologist specializing in breast imaging. After completing my residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and my fellowship training in breast and body imaging at Memorial Sloan-Kettering, I joined the faculty at Mount Sinai.

I interpret all aspects of breast imaging, including mammograms, ultrasounds and MRIs, as well as perform interventional breast procedures such as imaging-guided breast biopsies and preoperative localizations. In addition to my clinical work, I train radiology residents and breast imaging fellows, as well as provide lectures throughout the year.

I am currently an officer for the New York Breast Imaging Society and am a member of the American College of Radiology, Radiological Society of North America and Society of Breast Imaging.
