Yoo Jin Lee, MD earned her medical degree at Kyungpook National University, followed by an internship and diagnostic radiology residency at the same institution. Dr. Lee was a research associate in Cardiovascular Radiology, and a clinical instructor and clinical fellow in Nuclear Medicine at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Dr. Lee's clinical work focuses on thoracic, cardiac, and noninvasive vascular imaging for endovascular intervention and cardiovascular surgery and vascular disease.

Her major research focuses on Cardiothoracic MRI imaging, which includes parametric mapping, myocardial scar imaging using 3D late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), thoracic MRI using 0.55T MRI, and pulmonary vascular MRI imaging.

Multimodality imaging of cardiac fibrosis is another direction of research of Dr Lee specifically Cardiac PET/CT and PET/MR using novel radiotracer in comparison to parametric mapping and LGE sequences from Cardiac MRI.
