Biographical Statement:

Dr. Karen Hunt completed her Medical Degree and received a Dean’s Award in Research at Stanford University. She then completed Radiology residency at University of Colorado Health Science Center. In Colorado she worked with Steve Parker MD and Gale Sisney MD, pioneers in noninvasive imaging guided needle breast biopsies which would result in many less surgical biopsies for benign conditions of the breast and greatly improve breast care for women. Inspired by their work Dr. Hunt did research in breast imaging education and improvement of imaging tools including breast ultrasound to better diagnose and treat breast disease. Dedicated to the cause of improving clinical care and fighting breast cancer, Dr. Hunt completed a breast imaging Fellowship at UC San Francisco where she trained with Ed Sickles MD a pioneer in breast cancer screening and education. She was faculty at University of Michigan and received grants to improve breast MRI techniques for detecting breast cancer. She has published papers in breast imaging education, ultrasound, MRI and computer aided detection in mammography and outcome analysis of screening mammography. At Henry Ford Hospital she has been site director for Breast Imaging at West Bloomfield since 2002. Here her main focuses have been improving techniques of breast cancer detection and education. She is active in the obstetrical ultrasound department. Dr. Hunt’s personal interests are family and friends, hiking, biking and ballroom and Latin dance.

 

Research Interests:

Dr. Hunt’s main focus is to improve techniques of breast cancer detection using diagnostic tools including digital mammography, 3D- mammograms, ultrasound, breast MRI and molecular breast imaging. We continue to improve breast imaging procedures at Henry Ford Hospital including the recent introduction of the use of Mag Seeds for breast localizations.
