Violetta Karpova, M.D., is a board-certified radiologist with subspecialty fellowship training in mammography and women’s abdominal imaging. "Practice of breast imaging gives me an opportunity to detect disease early,” Dr. Karpova says, “in order to better facilitate an appropriate treatment plan using minimally invasive diagnostic tools.”
Dr. Karpova received her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee before continuing on to a residency in diagnostic radiology at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Wisconsin, followed by MRI/US body imaging fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, and a combined breast and body imaging fellowship at Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto, California.
Dr. Karpova is an active member of the American College of Radiology (ACR), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU). Dr. Karpova is pleased to contribute to City of Hope’s tradition of high-quality medical care, combined with its approach to teamwork. At City of Hope, “Multidisciplinary teams collaborate on treating the patient as a whole, instead of just the affliction,” Dr. Karpova says.
