Amie Lee, MD

Asst Prof Clinical Radiology
Radiology

Dr. Lee is an assistant professor in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF. She specializes in breast imaging, with clinical expertise in the imaging diagnosis and management of breast malignancies. She provides services at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Avon Breast Center, including care for the underserved population of San Francisco County. Her research has focused on the improvement of national breast MRI reporting practices and on optimizing imaging evaluation in women with signs and symptoms of breast cancer. Her interests also include enhancing early diagnosis of breast cancer in low-resource settings through improved utilization of targeted breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided biopsy. She is currently involved in breast imaging and fine needle aspiration educational collaborations with the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
