She is a member of the UW Health Breast Center, Section Chief of Breast Imaging and intervention and the breast imaging fellowship director.

She is a specialist in breast imaging, performing the multimodality interpretation of both screening and diagnostic exams, including mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis, ultrasound, and breast MRI. She also performs imaging-guided interventions, including ultrasound-guided, MRI-guided, and stereotactic biopsies, ultrasound-guided cyst aspirations, as well as image-guided localizations to guide surgery.

Dr. Strigel received her undergraduate degree in physics from Illinois Wesleyan University and an undergraduate and master’s degree in engineering from Washington University, St. Louis, MO and earned her medical degree from University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (formerly UW Medical School), Madison, WI. She completed a residency in diagnostic radiology and a fellowship in breast imaging at the University of Washington Affiliated Hospitals, Seattle, WA. Dr. Strigel is certified by the American Board of Radiology and is a Fellow of the Society of Breast Imaging and the Society of Breast MRI.

Her research is focused on novel MRI and PET/MRI techniques to identify breast cancer as early as possible, reduce false positives, characterize breast cancer and response to treatment and use MRI-based methods to measure breast density and assess breast cancer risk. She directs the American College of Radiology Breast MRI course and additional workshops teaching MRI-guided breast interventions through the Radiological Society of North America.
