Dr. Wesley Lee, co-director of Texas Children’s Fetal Center and section chief for women’s and fetal imaging at Baylor College of Medicine, recently received the Presidential Recognition Award from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) during its annual meeting last month.

Each year, AIUM President Dr. Beryl Benacerraf extends special recognition to individuals for outstanding contributions and service to the future of ultrasound in medicine. Lee was honored for his critical role in developing a national curriculum for OBGYN ultrasound training based on the participation of several professional societies including the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Among his many accomplishments, Lee has authored 148 peer-reviewed articles and 20 book chapters pertaining to maternal-fetal medicine, prenatal detection of congenital anomalies, 3-/4-dimensional fetal sonography and fetal magnetic resonance imaging.
