Dr. Weinreb was the Principal Investigator for the NCI sponsored cooperative Multicenter Study of In Vivo MR Spectroscopy for the Evaluation of Prostate Cancer, and led an international effort to develop PI-RADS (Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System) to standardize the acquisition, interpretation, and reporting of prostate MRI. In 2018 he was one of the organizers for the NIH/NIBIB workshop on clinical manifestations of gadolinium deposition. He recently helped to develop joint ACR-National Kidney Foundation consensus recommendations for the use of intravenous contrast media in patients with renal disease.
Dr. Weinreb has had numerous leadership position in professional organizations, including Vice President of the American College of Radiology, Chairman of the ACR Forum, member of the ACR Board of Chancellors, President of the New York Roentgen Society, and President of the SCBT-MR.
