Wessels completes computed tomography training at UI Hospitals and Clinics
A Dyersville native has graduated from the Program in Computed Tomography
at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
April Wessels completed her training in computed tomography on Feb. 22.
The six-month training session is an advanced post Radiologic Technology Educational
program. The program accepts four students to begin training during each year.
Wessels is the daughter of Bill and Betty Wessels of Dyersville.
UI Hospitals and Clinics first offered computed tomography training in 1996.
Computed tomography (CT) is an advanced technology that produces cross-sectional
images of targeted parts of the human anatomy using x-rays and computing.
CT provides information on pathological conditions that are difficult to evaluate
through conventional radiography alone. CT technologists work in various health
care settings, from freestanding mobile clinics and major trauma centers to
equipment sales and applications.
University of Iowa Health Care describes the partnership between
the UI College of Medicine and the UI Hospitals and Clinics and the patient
care, medical education and research programs and services they provide. Visit
