- Research Summary
Dr. Lee serves as the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) Gynecologic Committee Chair and, in this capacity, oversees the development and operations of co-operative group trials on gynecologic cancer imaging. Her area of clinical expertise and research is in female pelvic imaging of all modalities including fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, MRI and PET and in image-guided gynecologic procedures. Her research contributions have included original research articles on PET-CT for advanced cervical cancer and recurrent ovarian cancer, MRI for adnexal mass evaluation, and on image-guided drainage procedures of pelvic fluid collections. Her other academic roles include Assistant Editor of the American Journal of Roentgenology AJR and Vice-Chair of the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria Women's Imaging Panel.

Six Mass General radiologists were recently inducted as American College of Radiology fellows, demonstrating a history of service and dedication to patients.
The underlying medical conditions facing young adults who undergo computed tomography (CT) exams represent a significantly greater health risk than that of radiation-induced cancer from CT.
Radiologists' recommendations for followup imaging generated only 5.3 percent of chest and abdominal CT, brain and lumbar spine MRI and body PET exams, according to research performed at Mass General.
