Being a “woman of substance” requires a passion for benefitting the greater good. Dr. Cathrine Keller has it in abundance. “We believe the greater good is to put our patients’ health and safety at the epicenter of every decision we make.”

A woman of substance seldom has a neutral position. As a leader in the fight against breast cancer, she’s clear. “Mammograms from age 40 save lives, period, end of story.” And, as a “physician of substance” in diagnostic imaging, she has a long history of “firsts,” championing “what’s next” in diverse areas including interventional radiology, risk assessment and genetic testing for hereditary cancer risk, the use of CESM for imaging dense breasts and leveraging artificial intelligence. She is the perfect inspiration for International Women’s Day. As the immediate past President and Managing Physician of Lake Medical Imaging, she is the epitome of a strong leader, champion for health and innovator of best practices.

Dr. Keller received her medical degree from the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine, followed by a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and a fellowship in Neuroradiology at the University of Miami, Jackson Medical Center. In July 1988, she joined Lake Medical Imaging, which has grown from one Central Florida location with five radiologists to six locations and 23 radiologists, serving two University of Florida Health hospitals. Lake Medical Imaging was the first freestanding Diagnostic Center of Excellence in the U.S. and the first Breast Imaging Center of Excellence in Florida.

Dr. Keller served as president of the practice from 2005 until January 6, 2023.
