FLINT TWP. — Regional Medical Imaging (RMI) in Flint Township is honoring the life and legacy of the late Dr. Kristin Krizmanich-Conniff, a radiologist at RMI who passed away suddenly in June.

On Oct. 10, RMI held a ceremony to dedicate its women’s imaging wing as the Kristin Krizmanich Conniff Women’s Imaging Center. Family members and colleagues gathered to remember Krizmanich- Conniff for her enthusiastic dedication to the field of medical imaging and her compassionate work with breast cancer patients.

“Diagnosing breast cancer in early stages has saved lives, a task Dr. Krizmanich-Conniff undertook with characteristic grace, warmth and a bright smile,” said Dr. Randy Hicks, CEO of RMI. “This spirit will live on through the work of the dedicated team at this center named after her.”

Krizmanich-Conniff, affectionately known to the RMI staff as “Dr. K.K.,” joined RMI in 2012 following a breast imaging fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit from 2011-2012. She specialized in mammograms and was instrumental in guiding RMI to adopt cutting-edge breast imaging technology, including the development of the Screening Breast MRI program. — B.G.
