Dr. Lisa Weinstock founded Women’s Digital Imaging, now known as Women’s Diagnostic Imaging, in 2004 with a mission to be an advocate for her patients. Dr. Weinstock was an early proponent of obtaining personal and family histories from her patients, and using risk assessment and stratification to determine their need for supplemental imaging. She was also one of the earliest proponents of using supplemental imaging (Breast Ultrasound/MRI) for women with dense breasts. In 2009 she initiated legislation in New Jersey that passed in 2014, to require physicians to inform women about breast density. Health insurance providers are now required to cover the cost of additional testing for women with dense breasts. Dr. Weinstock also screens for other diseases including ovarian, uterine, abdominal, and thyroid cancer. She uses DEXA imaging, considered the gold standard, to measure thinning of the bones which can lead to osteoporosis and the ratio of body fat to muscle (Total Body Composition). Dr. Weinstock was first in Bergen County to introduce Low-Dose Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) in 2004. She has worked closely with Sharsheret to provide education about breast imaging, including a complete overview of breast imaging modalities in a 2015 webinar. She acts as a resource for women needing guidance before and after cancer diagnosis.
Dr. Weinstock completed a fellowship in Breast Imaging at Columbia Presbyterian University Medical Center and a four-year residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Hackensack University Medical Center. She was an intern in Anatomic Pathology at Montefiore Medical Center and attained her M.D. from the SUNY-Health Sciences Center of Brooklyn.
