Dr. Lipsit is a recently retired radiologist who received his MD from Georgetown University School of Medicine. He spent the first part of his career at the George Washington University School of Medicine, in academic medicine. Later on, he became a partner in a radiology private practice. Dr. Lipsit specialized in Women’s Imaging. As a radiologist, Dr. Lipsit performed diagnostic imaging procedures – like MRI, CT, PET, and ultrasound, reviewed information gathered from these imaging procedures, and communicated the results to patients and other physicians. The collaborative nature of radiology – constantly discussing results and talking with other healthcare providers – is one of Dr. Lipsit’s favorite aspects of it.
